Connecticut Food Bank to benefit from New Haven Restaurant Week

Get into the spirit of giving as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday by taking part in New Haven Restaurant week's food and fund drive for Connecticut Food Bank.

There are thousands of men, women and children in our local community who don’t always know where their next meal is coming from. Area residents can help make a difference in the lives of those affected by hunger by patronizing some of the city’s most sought-after restaurants during New Haven Restaurant Week, November 11 – 16.  For the second year, Citizens Bank and Market New Haven have partnered to bring attention to the problem of hunger. 

Diners at 33 participating restaurants are being encouraged to add a one dollar donation when paying their meal tab. Every dollar customers add to their restaurant bill enables Connecticut Food Bank to feed one person for a day.

In addition to funds, people can donate non-perishable food items.  The city of New Haven is collecting non-perishables until November 30 at City Hall, The New Haven Free Public Library and the new Gateway Community College.   Project Storefront artists will then create an art installation out of the donated products and display them at 756 Chapel Street.
