Holiday Food Drive
Food drive to benefit Connecticut Food Bank

Join the Yale Peabody Museum in Supporting the Connecticut Food Bank This Holiday Season.

Please donate non-perishable, non-expired food items to support the area soup kitchens and food banks through the Connecticut Food Bank. 

Donations will be collected from December 1 through December 18.

 

More than 400,000 Connecticut residents struggle with hunger; more than 115,000 children are food insecure. These are people from all walks of life – children, working parents, seniors, or people living with disabilities. They are your neighbors.

 

Connecticut Food Bank works through a network of community-based programs, such as soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters to provide nutritious food to people in need, but we know we need to do more.

 

Last year, Connecticut Food Bank distributed enough food to prepare nearly 22.5 million meals to people in need in Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London, and Windham counties.

 

Please help support the Connecticut Food Bank with a donation of non-expired, non-perishable food items. To help you encourage donations that will have a positive effect on nutrition for those we help, please view this list of healthy food donation suggestions.
