Join Foodshare for a simple meal of soup and bread donated by area restaurants on Saturday, October 19th from 11:00am-2:00 pm at Manchester Community College. Tickets for Empty Bowls include unlimited soup, bread, and choice of a handcrafted bowl by a local potter. This yearn a kid’s meal option will be offered at a discounted price. Proceeds will benefit Foodshare's efforts to support the 1 in 9 people in Greater Hartford who struggle with hunger.
Foodshare is the regional food bank serving Connecticut’s Hartford and Tolland counties, where 121,000 people struggle with hunger. In partnership with the food industry, donors, community leaders and volunteers, Foodshare works to maximize access to nutritious food and other resources that support food security. Because hunger is bigger than food, Foodshare collaborates with anti-hunger organizations, policy makers, and the broader community to build effective solutions to end hunger.
