You can help alleviate the growing problem of childhood hunger by holding a Working Together to Feed Families Food Drive in your local association.
The Coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated food insecurity in Connecticut and across the country. Hundreds of thousands of Connecticut residents are struggling with hunger. More than 150,000 of them are children.
Food insecurity harms young children’s health and development. As educators, we know first-hand that children who are hungry have greater difficulty in school and problems focusing on academics. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against hunger in our communities and our state.
