Charitable Programs

NEW - Grace Church Partner program 2012

PROGRAMS THAT HELP PEOPLE

There are 137,480 people throughout Greater Hartford who are food insecure, meaning they don’t know where their next meal is coming from. In order to provide the high volume of food needed to ensure our neighbors don’t go hungry, Foodshare partners with 300 local food programs, distributing 12 million meals worth of food each year.

We serve as the liaison between the food industry and charitable programs –community kitchens, emergency shelters, and food pantries – across the region. As Foodshare receives food donations from wholesalers and private individuals, these partner programs receive food from us to help feed hungry individuals and families in their respective areas.

One of our more prominent partners includes Mutual Housing Association of Greater Hartford:

Mutual Housing Association has been committed to providing affordable housing and revitalizing neighborhoods in greater Hartford for 25 years, while also engaging residents in leadership and educational opportunities. In 2011, Mutual Housing Association secured funding to help jumpstart their Leadership Academy program. The program “…invites individuals who are passionate about their community to attend a series of workshops designed to build the individual, the collective voice and the leadership skills of residents. The workshops will provide opportunities to learn and practice leadership skills in a safe and supportive setting.”

For more detailed information about the great work Mutual Housing Association does, watch this video:
