YLS Horn of Plenty Food Drive

Written Tuesday, November 5, 2019

Did you know that over 400,000 people in Connecticut are food insecure, and 1 in 7 children live in poverty?


The Young Lawyers Section is helping to make the difference between hungry and healthy in advance of the holiday season through its annual Horn of Plenty Food Drive from November 11 through November 22.

Monetary Donations

This year, the YLS is partnering with Foodshare and their Turkey and 30 campaign to put your dollars to work to feed those in need. A cash donation of just $10 to Foodshare provides a hungry neighbor with enough food for 25 meals, while a donation of $35 feeds a needy family for a week!

Join our team and do your part to meet our fundraising goal or select a YLS team member and make a donation on their behalf. Thank you for helping to meet our goal by November 22!

Food Collection

While cash donations are the easiest and most efficient way to provide those in need nutritious food, the YLS is also collecting food donations at locations around the state and working with Connecticut Food Bank to deliver any food it collects to local food banks.

If you prefer to donate healthy, non-perishable food items, please use Foodshare’s Healthy Food Donation list or Connecticut Food Bank’s list of healthy food donation suggestions as guides. Food can be donated at the locations below.
