In January 2021, Connecticut's two largest food banks, Foodshare and Food Bank, agreed to merge. The combined food bank, Connecticut Foodshare, is a not-for-profit organization aimed at combating the nationwide hunger crisis by delivering an informed and equitable response to hunger by mobilizing community partners, volunteers, and supporters.


The Agency focused on helping CT Foodshare communicate information about their Summer Food Service Program. The program’s purpose was to give children in kindergarten-12th grade meals in the summer when school lunch is not provided. Students worked with the food bank to develop an email blast, talking points, flyers/brochures, and social content.


In April 1982, CT Foodshare was founded and began to create a plan that would work toward its mission of solving hunger. Also, in 1982, CT Food Bank was founded and already supplied food to 70 agencies throughout Connecticut. By the end of its inaugural year, CT Food Bank had distributed thousands of pounds of food. 


After merging, Connecticut Foodshare continues to support individuals and families by addressing root causes, creating long-term solutions, and distributing nutritious food through local partner programs to alleviate hunger state-wide. This is possible with mobile food pantries, summer meal distribution centers, and commodity supplemental food programs (CSFP).
