Your Gift Through June 15 Will DOUBLE

Thanks to the generosity of Mark and Patricia Beckwith, 
your gift to Connecticut Food Bank / Foodshare right now can be matched – dollar for dollar – up to $25,000!

That means your support through midnight June 15 will double in value to provide twice the meals, twice the support, and twice the hope for families like Cassie’s.

Cassie and her five-year-old son, Aiden, moved to Connecticut in need of a fresh start. “Aiden’s father was an abusive husband and parent. I had to get us out of there,” she said.

She found work and began building a new life for her son. But then COVID-19 hit, and the restaurant where she was a waitress shut down. Suddenly, she was back to square one. No job. No money. Nowhere to go and no one to turn to. “I spent many nights going to bed on an empty stomach,” she said. “My son has to eat before me. That’s not up for debate.”

Moms like Cassie need your support if they’re going to have the food they need during this difficult and uncertain time – and your gift right now can go twice as far to help.

Families, children, and seniors in Connecticut need your support now more than ever. Please make your most generous gift now and it will go twice as far.
