Our Impact 

The total number of meals we distributed in 2016 was over 480,000.
Each day the dining room averages 239 meals
Each day the pantry opens it averages 250 people served.
In 2016 32% of the people served were children.

The overall food insecurity rate in New London County is 12.7%, but for children it is 18.5%. That’s 10,630 kids! However, only 57% of these children qualify for federal nutrition programs.
