Connecticut Food Bank News - Urgent Help Needed: COVID-19 Response

Clubs and Organizations

March 19, 2020

As communities in our area close schools, cancel events, and businesses cut back in response to the coronavirus crisis, we have seen hunger increase for families already under stress. Your help is needed now.

More than 144,000 people visit our network of partners and programs each month for food. As this pandemic intensifies, people will need our help more than ever.

Those already in need will feel it first. As jobs are limited or lost, events are cancelled, and schools are closed down for the foreseeable future, more children and families will begin to experience hunger and will turn to us for help. The impact on our economy is expected to be significant.

You can take action right now to make a difference.
