We’re excited to announce that we are again participating in the Travelers Championship Birdies for Charity program! This a pledge based fundraiser based on the number of birdies made by PGA TOUR professionals during the championship. If 1,500 birdies are made, your $0.02 pledge would be a $30 donation. Just visit our pledge page to donate and help us continue to fight hunger and improve nutrition in Hartford!
Since 1978, Hartford Food System has been a leader in grassroots efforts to fight hunger and improve nutrition in Hartford’s low-income neighborhoods. We are one of the nation’s oldest organizations working to promote the concept of community food security, defined as all persons being able to obtain a culturally acceptable, nutritionally adequate diet in their community from normal sources such as grocery stores and farmers markets. Our work and programs are based on three reinforcing strategies:
- Increase access for all residents to normal food outlets, particularly grocery stores and farmers markets.
- Deepen the connection between food consumers, especially our youth, and agricultural production.
- Advance public policies to improve affordability and quality of food.
