Help Foodshare Knock Hunger Out of the Park on May 5!
Step up to the plate and help make an impact on hunger in Greater Hartford! Join us at the 35th Annual Foodshare Walk Against Hunger on Saturday, May 5th at Dunkin’ Donuts Park – home of the Hartford Yard Goats. The Foodshare Walk Against Hunger is not only our largest fundraiser, but the largest anti-hunger event of its kind in Connecticut. Registration opens at 8:30 am and the Walk steps off at 10 AM.
Funds raised from the Walk support Foodshare and our partner programs who serve the 127,000 people in Hartford and Tolland counties struggling with food insecurity. The funds also support long-term efforts to increase access to healthy food and address the underlying issues that contribute to hunger. Last year alone we were able to provide enough food for nearly 12 million meals to help our friends and neighbors in Greater Hartford. More than 1/3 of that food was fresh produce – providing healthy options for the people we serve. In supporting the Foodshare Walk Against Hunger, you will help us continue this important work.
