SHELTON, Conn. (WTNH) — A new initiative has been launched to raise awareness about food insecurity in the Connecticut Valley.
On Monday, Valley United Way announced a multi-year-grant to establish the Valley Food Bank Network.
“There’s a lot to be proud of in the valley region, but there’s also some areas where we really need to strengthen. And we really need to be much more strategic on how we partner with not-for-profits, how we partner with the municipalities, how we partner with school districts, and how we partner with businesses that this is everybody’s call to action when we talk about food insecurity,” the organization said.
