Foodshare's Drive-Up Distribution
Foodshare’s food distribution at Rentschler Field has been extended through the end of July.
Foodshare has been distributing food to the Greater Hartford community through a drive-thru distribution model for over the past two months at Rentschler Field, in East Hartford. At just this distribution alone, Foodshare has served over 75,000 households and has distributed over 2 million pounds of food. “We committed to keeping this operation running to help fill the increased need in the community as people continue to struggle financially due to the pandemic, we are happy to announce that we will continue this food distribution until the end of July,” said Jason Jakubowski, President and CEO of Foodshare.
