Founded in 1982, Foodshare is the regional food bank serving Connecticut’s Hartford and Tolland counties, where 121,000 people struggle with hunger. Foodshare is a member of the national organization Feeding America, along with 200 other food banks nationally.
Foodshare's mission is to lead an informed, coordinated response to hunger in our community. Our strategic priorities are:
Increase access to nutritious food
Build collective action to address root causes of hunger
Build awareness and advocate for long-term solutions
Foodshare distributes over 11 million meals each year to a network of Partner Programs. This network includes pantries, community kitchens, shelters, snack programs for children and other programs that reflect our values and have a similar vision for the Greater Hartford area. This includes acting with empathy and respect, making the best use of every resource, maximizing access to nutritious food, and addressing the root causes of food insecurity.
With finite resources, this Request for Partnership process allows Foodshare to strategically allocate services in our communities in order to have the greatest impact, and ensure that we are able to effectively support our network with high quality service and food.
