Connecticut Food Bank / Foodshare Walk Against Hunger is returning, stepping off at 10:00 AM both virtually and at Dunkin' Donuts Park — home of the Hartford Yard Goats. We are excited for our first statewide Walk as a combined organization, rallying the community to bring awareness to the issue of food insecurity in Connecticut. Funds raised from the Walk help support not only Connecticut Food Bank / Foodshare but the partner agencies that help us serve the estimated 545,000 people in Connecticut who struggle with hunger, including 164,000 children.

We are excited to welcome back Renee DiNino from The River 105.9 and Scot Haney from WFSB as our emcees. There will be plenty of entertainment on Walk day, and the event is FREE to the public; no registration fee!

Pre-registration will open in the summer and check-in will begin at 8:00 AM on Walk Day. Stay tuned to learn more. We look forward to our first combined statewide event as we work together to knock hunger out of the park!.

Date: September 18, 2021.

Time and Venue: Stepping off at 10:00 AM both virtually and at Dunkin' Donuts Park, 1214 Main St, Hartford, CT 06103 — home of the Hartford Yard Goats.
