Food Donations

In 2018
Over 93,000 residents of Fairfield County, CT struggled to find enough food (9.9%).
26,940 children experienced hunger (12.4%).

In 2020
The food insecurity rate is projected to increase by 16 - 17% due to COVID-19 --
that means thousands of more people will go to bed with an empty stomach.
