April segues into many May Events and opportunities!

1.) The construction of Tower Gardens begins April 11th with assistance from Quinnipiac University students. Goal is 100 Gardens for distribution to food pantry recipients

2.) All "landscaping" around the Master's Manna facility will become "edible" as we vow to END the FEAR of HUNGER

3.) Funding is urgently needed for HVAC installation. This system will ensure perishable food remains viable for distribution and promote the health and welfare of individuals in site

4.) The GREAT Give is slated for May 5 & 6th! See post!

5.) The Walk Against Hunger is scheduled for May 17th. Join "The Hunger Fighters" Team and walk with us or.... please feel free to support this cause!

 We know that everyone has a choice of where you donate your money. THANK YOU for CHOOSING to INVEST in this community!


What is Food Insecurity and what does it look like in New Haven County?

*14.1%, or, 121,340 people living in New Haven County face food insecurity.

As of 4/30/15 1,682 food insecure people have registered with Master’s Manna Food Pantry. 

*”Food Insecurity” refers to the USDA’s measure of lack of access, at times, to enough good for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability if nutritionally adequate foods.

Food insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time, Food insecurity may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods.

The FEAR of HUNGER ENDS here!!!!
