Connecticut Food Bank's Walk Against Hunger 


Dear Team Member,

  • Once again, on Sunday, April 27th we are participating in the Walk Against Hunger to benefit Connecticut Food Bank at Seaside Park in Bridgeport. My goal is to raise ($4,000) to help alleviate hunger in Connecticut. Did you know that one in 7 households in Connecticut is struggling to keep food on the table?
  • Your donation will help feed families who are served by approximately 600 food-assistance programs served by Connecticut Food Bank.
  • For every $10 donated, Connecticut Food Bank can distribute $50 worth of food at wholesale value. And in addition, 95 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to program services.
  • Donate online by using a credit card, or you can mail a donation directly to Connecticut Food Bank at the address listed below. Please send a note indicating our team's name (Brooklawn Servanthood, Salt and Light) so we receive credit.
  • Solicit funds from your friends, coworkers and family. All monies collected should be turned in to the Team Captain.
