Help Provide 2X as many meals

1 Gift = Double the Impact on Summer Hunger

Here in Connecticut, summer is an incredibly challenging time for kids facing hunger at home. For children who depend on school breakfasts and lunches during the school year, summer can be a time of high anxiety, worrying about when they’ll eat again.

But that’s where you can help! Thanks to some generous donors, every gift we receive before June 30 will be doubled — up to $35,000!

Now, your support will go twice as far to provide meals to twice as many of our neighbors struggling with hunger this summer. At a time of year when our emergency food supply tends to run low, your gift can make all the difference!

Your Gift is Matched

It’s hard to imagine children in Connecticut are in such a need, but one in six kids is food insecure — like Carrie.

“I don’t like to go to the store. My mom doesn’t want us to know she’s worried. We don’t ask for extra things like granola bars or grapes. But she still does not have enough to get all the things on her list,” Carrie says.

You can make double the difference for kids like Carrie this summer. Your support will help provide twice as many nourishing meals to twice as many hungry children and their families. Every $1 you give will double to help provide food for 4 meals.
