Feeding Growing Bodies and Minds

C&S Wholesale Grocers has helped us ensure more children throughout Greater Hartford have access to the nutritious food they need to learn and grow. Through a two-year Child Hunger grant, C&S Wholesale Grocers has helped Foodshare distribute food to children and families served by backpack and school pantry programs in communities around Suffield and Windsor Locks. In addition to this generous grant support, C&S donated enough food to generate over 400,000 meals, with nearly a quarter being fresh produce!

And then there's in-kind support...

Napkins, plates, cutlery and more, provided by C&S Wholesale Grocers helped local partners provide meals to children across the region while school was out. The company generously donated water for 4,800 walkers participating in the last year's Foodshare Walk Against Hunger. And having the “C&S Turkey Reefer” here during the month of November was a huge help in acquiring and distributing over 16,000 turkeys in a two week period. And then there are the incredible staff members at C&S Wholesale Grocers who, collectively, dedicated over 300 volunteer hours last year.

We cannot thank them enough for their never-ending generosity...what a difference it makes!
