Here is Renee's interview with Jason Jakubowski, CEO of Foodshare.
He chats about the latest Foodshare updates and shares how you can participate in the iHeartMedia Connecticut Virtual Food Drive to Benefit Foodshare!
Listen below for the complete interview:
As a result of COVID-19 health pandemic, many of our neighbors across Connecticut communities are in need of meals now more than ever.
Our stations have partnered with Foodshare to help raise funds to aid the cause. Social distancing has made physical food drives impossible to coordinate at this time due to the possible spread of the virus.
Foodshare is seeing a dramatic decrease in volunteers, a higher cost in purchasing pre-bagged produce which requires less sorting. These changes have shifted the way they operate to deliver food to pantries and Mobile Foodshare sites across Connecticut for food assistance.
Please consider making a donation at this time. Your donation of $50.00 can help provide 125 meals to residents of the state, however, we ask for a contribution that you would feel most comfortable during these times.
"The situation is ever-evolving and as we learn more, our response will continue to change. What we do know is that the Greater Hartford community has always stepped up to help us. We are so grateful and thankful for all of the support we have received throughout this crisis. Hunger is big, but the Foodshare community is bigger. Thank you!!" - Foodshare
