The Connecticut Food Bank works through a network of nearly 700 community food assistance programs, such as soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters to provide nutritious food to people in need in six of Connecticut’s eight counties: Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham. They are an affiliate of Feeding Americathe nation’s food bank network.
