HARTFORD — With resources from its “Partnership Program”, Foodshare has worked with Loaves & Fishes Ministries to help them replace an outdated freezer. With the new commercial freezer, the soup kitchen will be able to continue safely storing food, according Foodshare.
Representatives said Loaves & Fishes Ministries, Inc. directly impacts families throughout the Asylum Hill neighborhood and beyond. In 2010, the soup kitchen provided more than 36,110 meals.
The program also encourages clients to make use of other available resources such as the organization’s Opening Doors Program, which provides job skills training and employment.
In addition to this recent collaboration, Foodshare provided 16,753 pounds of food to Loaves and Fishes Ministries in the past year to support individuals and families experiencing food insecurity in Hartford.
