Hunger Action Teams

2013 Bloomfield HAT meeting (2) header

A CALL TO ACTION

A comprehensive solution to food insecurity requires all hands on deck, which is why Foodshare and a regional network of anti-hunger organizations have begun building a movement of citizens committed to solutions that tackle the root causes of hunger. These efforts include partnering with local government, social service agencies, faith groups, and schools through the creation of Hunger Action Teams (HATs). Hunger Action Teams aim to jumpstart the conversation in order to build each community’s capacity for efficiently and effectively meeting local needs. Check out this article from Foodshare's newsletter, highlighting the power of Hunger Action Teams.

BECOME A PART OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK!

While Foodshare has a 30-year history of collaboration and network-building, much of this work is still very new. Hunger Action Teams are hard at work in several towns already but we have high hopes that every town will adopt this program in the years ahead.

We can create a hunger-free Greater Hartford, but we need your help to make it happen. Learn where these groups are making a difference and join the team.
