Mission Statement

When hunger stops, so will we.

Description

Foodshare's mission is to end hunger in Greater Hartford by collecting and distributing donated food (most of which would otherwise be wasted) and by educating and involving the public about causes and potential solutions to the problem of hunger. Over 12 million pounds of donated food each year to over 300 local charities in Greater Hartford. Foodshare is affiliated with Feeding America, the Nation's Food Bank Network. Foodshare is primarily a volunteer organization, with over 3,000 volunteers working on sorting and packaging food, picking fresh produce from local farmers' fields, driving to pick up and deliver donations of food, fundraising, and dozens of other activites. We have a volunteer job for everyone! Contact us and we'll design one that meets your interests, needs, and schedule.
