If your organization offers food assistance to an underserved community, we encourage you to apply for partnership with Connecticut Foodshare. Partner programs enter a formal agreement with Connecticut Foodshare and gain access to food, guidance, and other support to advance their mission.

Connecticut Foodshare is currently accepting requests for partnership from food pantries, community kitchens, and emergency shelters that are open to the public and/or reaching an underserved community. Priority will be given to food pantries and community kitchens in locations where other food assistance options are limited. We are not currently accepting requests for partnership from residential, childcare, rehabilitation, and adult day programs.
