Connecticut Foodshare is partnering with our local farmers to bring fresh and locally grown products to our neighbors.
There are too many people in Connecticut experiencing food insecurity, including 1 in 8 children. One way we are addressing this is to purchase locally grown products from established and emerging farms to supply our neighbors with healthy food and support statewide agriculture.
Purchased products are transported throughout our charitable food network in a variety of ways. Bulk quantities of food pass through Connecticut Foodshare’s warehouse and are distributed to our partner programs through their normal ordering process. Smaller quantities of food can be transported directly to partner programs either by the farm, the pantry, or a Connecticut Foodshare volunteer.
