Last year, with the support of money raised in the Walk, Hands On Hartford:

• Served nearly 30,000 meals at the MANNA Community Meals soup kitchen
• Gave away over 155,000 pounds of food at the MANNA Community Pantry
• Provided over 10,000 backpacks full of food to children in Hartford
 
In the words of one of our guests at Community Meals:
 
Thank you for the hope you give me. Thank you for the food that fills me. This place gives me so much more than just a place to eat. You all are a reminder that all is not lost, there is still good in this world. That alone helps give me the strength I need to wake up and face the world each day. Being able to focus on bettering myself because I have one less thing to worry about is only coming to fruition due to your efforts. As soon as I am on my feet I look forward to helping out here myself. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart and God has already and will continue to bless you all here.
-L.B.

Together, we can be a part of the movement that makes hunger history.
