5 Ways Kids Can Help Fight Hunger in CT

People often write in to CTbites asking how their kids can get involved in helping the hungry in our local community. We decided to go to the source, Connecticut Food Bank, to see how best to assist in their efforts. It turns out there are quite a few ways kids can get involved.  Here are some places to begin:

Organize a Team to Walk Against Hunger.  We just opened Registration for the 2013 Walk Against Hunger,  There are now four dates to choose from.  There also may be opportunities for young people and families to volunteer at the walk.  It’s truly a fun family event.

Organize a food drive at school, with a sports team/club or the neighborhood, here’s a link to the info. on our site,

Volunteer.  Contact Kim Damien, our Volunteer Coordinator to learn about volunteer opportunities for young people and families. There’s volunteer information the CT Food Bank's volunteer page, or you can contact Kim at, or call 203-469-5000.

Host a Hunger 101.  Connecticut Food Bank representatives can visit schools or a youth group to present a Program about what it’s like to struggle with Hunger.  It works best with kids ages 10 and up, in groups of 15 to 25 people. 

We hope this gets your kids going. If you need additional information, feel free to Contact Us.

Community Plates is also a great food rescue operation. My kids love helping out when I'm rescuing food and getting it to hungry people in the local area. Take a look at
