You can help alleviate the growing problem of childhood hunger by making a donation to the Working Together to Feed Families Food Drive. Together, we can make a difference in the fight against hunger in our communities and our state.
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 firsthand that children who are hungry have greater difficulty in school and trouble focusing on academics.
Join CEA and host a food drive in your local between May 24 and June 11. CEA will provide you with publicity materials and other information you need to run a successful food drive. See the flyer below for more information about Foodshare. For more information, contact Joe Zawawi at firstname.lastname@example.org or Brendan Murphy at email@example.com.
