Please help us spread the word about the schedule change for October.
Attached are flyers and social media graphics that you can share.

Foodshare’s food distribution at Rentschler Field will continue three
days per week throughout October. Foodshare has served over 165,000
households and has distributed over 4 million meals over the past five
months at its drive-thru food distribution in East Hartford.

“We’re so grateful to be continuing the Rentschler Field distribution
with a new schedule into October, and for our continued partnership
with the State of Connecticut. This drive-thru distribution, in
conjunction with our existing network of partner programs and Mobile
Foodshare sites, is making it possible for us to reach more households
in our community than ever before at a time of unprecedented need,”
said Jason Jakubowski, President and CEO. “The number of cars waiting
in line for food is still very high. With an average of 1600
households served during each distribution we continue to share
additional resources to everyone who stops by our site, so that they
are aware of all of the options available to them,” said Jakubowski.

Important information to share with the community:
We will be distributing food on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; 8:30 am
– 12:00 pm; CLOSED On Monday and Wednesday.
