Foodshare: Helping Feed People In CT through the Holidays

Here is Renee's interview with Jason Jakubowski, CEO of Foodshare.

He chats about the continuation of the Rentschler Field Food Distribution through the month of November and about how you can donate to this year's Turkey and 30 campaign.

Listen here:

It’s Turkey Time!

Foodshare’s annual Turkey and Thirty campaign kicked off on November 1. We will continue with our annual tradition of providing Thanksgiving meals and raising funds to fight hunger year-round. In an effort to keep everyone safe, this year’s campaign will look a little different. Here are some updates:

• To preserve our collective safety, we have suspended in-person turkey collection drives this year. Instead, Foodshare has purchased some turkeys in advance to meet our clients’ needs.

• Community members will be able to donate to Foodshare to support the purchase of a turkey (or more!) for a neighbor in need. Your monetary gift will help Foodshare achieve our goal; to provide thousands of families with the food they need on Thanksgiving and beyond.

• By sharing this news with your network you can double or triple your impact for this year’s Turkey and Thirty campaign!

The demand for food assistance has increased significantly during the pandemic, so your support now is critical.
