Connecticut Food Bank - Community Conversations: Breaking the Cycle of Hunger

Hunger in Connecticut; the numbers are surprising and the need is growing. More than 400,000 Connecticut residents struggle with hunger. More than 120,000 Connecticut residents are identified by the USDA as regularly missing meals or skipping meals to allow others in their households to eat. One in six children in Connecticut struggles with hunger.

Last year, the Connecticut Food Bank distributed enough food for more than 21 million meals. We are working to alleviate hunger. At the same time, we seek new ways to address the problem and to end hunger in Connecticut.

Join us to learn more about the state of hunger in Connecticut, what we are doing to address the problem and share ways that we can work together to break the cycle of hunger in Connecticut.
