JULY 2020 - JUNE 2021
Our Historic Merger
Beth Henry, Board Chair
At the end of 2020, we announced the intended merger of the former Foodshare and the former Connecticut Food Bank. It was and is our sincere belief that together we can better serve the people of Connecticut and make greater strides towards ending food insecurity. Following months of intense work addressing the significant increase in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we knew that we had a responsibility to do whatever was necessary to address those needs.
We are now Connecticut Foodshare, serving a statewide network of 700 partner programs, over 3,700 volunteers and more than 100 staff working to meet the needs of our neighbors in Connecticut struggling with food insecurity - and continuing to find new ways to address root causes of hunger and long-term solutions. When I think back on the last year, the consistent theme of partnership sits at the forefront of my mind. We hosted vaccine clinics and voter registration drives at our mobile food pantries and emergency drive-thru distributions, and provided nearly 47 million meals of food. None of this would have been possible without partnership - among our merged staff and volunteers, our incredible network, with other non-profits, elected officials, and with our dedicated supporters. We faced insurmountable odds- but together we have accomplished so much, and I look forward to seeing where these partnerships will lead us.
On behalf of myself and the Connecticut Foodshare Board of Directors, I am proud to share the impact of our work with you, and I am so grateful for your continued support to make everything possible. This is only the beginning of our next chapter.
Jason Jakubowski, President & CEO
It’s impossible to quantify how much our world and our organization have changed in the last two years. While we deal with many of the same issues we dealt with one year ago, our perspective has broadened, our tactics and tools have improved, and most importantly the geographic scope of our work has increased immensely. By merging the two historical food banks that served Connecticut for nearly 40 years, we have created one statewide organization capable of greater reach and a more significant impact.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, we have faced challenges we could not have imagined. And as we approached each situation with care, we also knew that expediency was critical to meeting the need. At times circumstances were so urgent that our response needed to be just that: urgent. But now nearly two years into the pandemic, we feel that Connecticut Foodshare - in partnership with our network, elected officials, and tireless supporters - can begin to think about recovery. There are still far too many people in Connecticut struggling with food insecurity, and during the height of the pandemic, we did our best to urgently meet the needs of our neighbors. But now, with time, perspective, and new resources, we can begin to think about how we can help them recover.
Food insecurity has had more public attention in the past two years than any other time in the last decade. I want to encourage you all to think about how we can begin to move forward together through collaboration, transformative policy change, community support, and compassion.
I am so proud of the staff, volunteers, and the Board of Directors who have led the way during this journey. As a team and a family - we are humbled by your continued support and trust in us, and we assure you that we will always do our best as we continue to serve the people of Connecticut.
A thriving community, free of hunger.
To deliver an informed and equitable response to hunger by mobilizing community partners, volunteers, and supporters.
"We stay connected via food. Whether it's the food we get or the food we cook, there's always a little piece of yourself in it."
Connecticut Foodshare provides millions of meals to our community each year.
We partner with the food industry to rescue surplus food.
Volunteers sort and pack the food at our facilities across the state.
The food is distributed through pantries, meal programs and mobile sites.
Food is provided to our neighbors in need throughout Connecticut.
Food Industry Donors
We are grateful to partner with over 400 local food donors, from small farms to large retail stores. Last year, about 35% of all donated items came from the food industry.
"I did a huge soup last week with every kind of vegetable that I got here. I shared some with my mom and one of my friends. It’s helping me give too. The giving has a ripple effect."
Nearly 47 Million Meals
Providing food for our community has been our mission for nearly 40 years. Last year, we distributed enough food to help provide nearly 47 million meals from our facilities in Wallingford, Bloomfield, and Bridgeport through a network of 700 partner food pantries, meal programs and mobile food distribution sites all across Connecticut. One-third of that food was nutritious produce.
More than 3,700 volunteers help power the work of Connecticut Foodshare; providing nearly 62,000 hours of service in a variety of roles across the organization.
Retail Food Rescue
We rescued 10 million pounds of food from over 300 local grocery stores in Connecticut with the help of about 250 volunteers and partner agency representatives.
Our food pantry-on-wheels visits over 100 sites throughout the state, bringing much needed pantry staples, meat, dairy, and produce directly into neighborhoods and towns.
Institute for Hunger Research & Solutions
The Connecticut Foodshare Institute for Hunger Research & Solutions conducted research to understand barriers to food access to help inform future programming. This research revealed increases in pre-existing disparities in food insecurity among communities of color and households with children. The Institute created a pilot program, in partnership with Feeding America and two other food banks, to help connect families to coaching and resources.
Distributed over 50,000 turkeys to Connecticut families for Thanksgiving meals.
Our work was recognized by and honored with awards from multiple community organizations.
SNAP Outreach volunteers helped more than 1,400 households apply for SNAP.
We worked with members of Congress to continue to protect and strengthen federal nutrition programs. We invigorated our partnerships and collaborated creatively at the state level with the offices of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, the State Legislature and multiple state departments to ensure that the people of Connecticut who struggle with food insecurity received the support that they needed.
Our Hunger Action Teams continue to engage thousands of community members on local solutions to hunger.
We worked with community healthcare providers to create COVID-19 vaccination sites at our food distribution locations.
Hundreds of thousands of families were served at drive-thru food distributions across the state.
"I come here to provide for my family when work is a little bit slow and we need some extra assistance. The people here value me and want to help me. They're not just doing a job."
