The mission of Connecticut Food Bank is to alleviate hunger. They strive to do this by supplying food products and resources to their member agencies, and promoting public awareness about the problem of hunger. The Connecticut Food Bank is a private, nonprofit organization that works with corporations, community organizations, and individuals to solicit, transport, warehouse and distribute donated food. By soliciting the food industry for products that will not sell – items that are wholesome but might have some cosmetic flaw – CFB reduces waste and feeds people.
