About the Organization

Recognized as one of the most innovative, food banks in the country, Foodshare offers a dynamic President & CEO (CEO) the opportunity to leverage significant community visibility and support to further our mission of ending hunger and alleviating poverty in Hartford and Tolland counties. Founded in 1982, Foodshare has become a leader in the fight against hunger locally, regionally and nationally. From our 57,000 square foot facility in Bloomfield, CT and our satellite produce salvage facility at the Regional Market in Hartford, CT, we distributed 11.5 million meals worth of food through our network of 296 partner agencies (food pantries, community kitchens, and local social service agencies) in 2016. Geographically, the counties that we serve have incredible wealth and equally incredible poverty. Foodshare has an annual budget of approximately $30 million, 55 full-time employees, a network of 4,713 volunteers, and is governed by a 23-member board of directors.
