Fairfield County Alumnae Makes A Difference During Pandemic


Submitted by Jacqueline Rodriguez

According to statistics from the Connecticut Food Bank, more than 400,000 Connecticut residents struggle with hunger; more than 115,000 children are food insecure. These are people from all walks of life – children, working parents, seniors, or people living with disabilities. They are your neighbors.

Connecticut Food Bank works through a network of community-based programs, such as soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters to provide nutritious food to people in need.
Last year (2019) Connecticut Food Bank distributed enough food to prepare nearly 22.5 million meals to people in need in six Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London, and Windham counties.

During the pandemic on May 7, 2020, members of the Fairfield County Alumnae Chapter partnered with the Connecticut Food Bank to distribute food to more than 1,500 families in the Bridgeport area. In addition, on May 14, 2020, the chapter continued its work to service local communities by distributing food and Census 2020 palm cards to over 2,000 citizens in the Norwalk, CT area.

Fairfield County Alumnae Chapter worked to combat hunger while providing information to ensure its communities are counted in the Census 2020 and provided with funding for health care, education, emergency services, and more. Residents were informed that over the next decade, lawmakers, business owners, and many others will use 2020 Census data to make critical decisions for communities nationwide. We must be in the number!
