Foodshare Walk Against Hunger
ABOUT THE WALK
The Foodshare Walk Against Hunger provides much-needed support for all of our participating program partners. There are 137,480 people, including 42,830 children, in need of emergency food assistance in the Greater Hartford region. Foodshare is working to address this issue by engaging the community at-large and building a movement focused on reducing the need of our hungry neighbors. The Foodshare Walk Against Hunger is one key way in which we, as a community, can raise awareness of hunger.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support Foodshare on May 3. Photos are available for your viewing pleasure, and check out our blog for highlights from Walk Day. Thanks to your overwhelming generosity, we raised $636,377 to continue fighting hunger here in Greater Hartford!
