Thank you to everyone who made the 2015 Walks Against Hunger a great success!

More than 2,000 walkers, volunteers and supporters joined us this year in the Walk Against Hunger, raising critical awareness and funds for those in need. Thank you to our sponors Webster Bank, Marcum LLP, Wiggin & Dana, Star 99.9, WPLR and all of our in-kind donors for making the event possible!

Summer Hunger food drives

From June 19th to July 17th, Star 99.9, WPLR and Stop & Shop are partnering together to ease the stress of summer hunger. These food drives couldn't come at a better time for those struggling with hunger. During the summer months food donations often decrease, while families have to come up with extra meals when their children do not have access to free and reduced price lunches. For more information go to ctfoodbank.org/summerhunger.

Join us at the Barnum Festival Parade food & fund drive

Since 2009, the Bridgeport Rotary Club has collected nearly $10,000 and 1,500 pounds of food through it's annual Barnum Festival Parade. Join the fun on Sunday, June 28th at 12 p.m. and celebrate the Bridgeport community. Connecticut Food Bank's GROW truck will be driving in the parade route collecting food and monetary donations. We hope to see you there! For more information, click here.
