Walk Against Hunger Thank You

Thank you to everyone who walked or donated to support Hands On Hartford in Foodshare’s 28th Annual Walk Against Hunger on Sunday, May 1st!

It was the perfect day to enjoy a 3-mile Walk Against Hunger in Hartford’s historic West End. Over 4,000 individuals were there the day of the Walk, raising over $538,000 for Foodshare and benefitting agencies.

All of the money that was raised to benefit Hands On Hartford, will go to our MANNA programs.  These funds will go to purchase food which will then be distributed to the individuals and families we serve.

It’s not too late to donate to this cause.  Foodshare will be accepting donations through May 19th.

If you would like to donate to benefit Hands On Hartford, you can mail a check to Foodshare or donate online to a Hands On Hartford team.

 Make checks payable to “Walk Against Hunger” and send to Foodshare, 450 Woodland Ave, Bloomfield CT 06002 (Make sure you include a copy of your walk registration form, so we credit the right person, team, and agency)
