Walk or Run on Saturday, October 8th

Join us and be part of the Eversource Hartford Marathon Nourish with Love Team to help serve our next 100,000 meals.

The more walkers and runners who fundraise, the more meals we can provide!

In June, we recently celebrated our 100,000 meals served milestone:

Carrot Ginger Soup

100,000 Meals Served
& Counting

  • 880 clients served
  • in over 85 towns
  • with 43,000 volunteer hours!!

We are taking this momentum with us as we strive to serve the next 100,000 meals at a time when families need it most. We would LOVE to have your help getting there! The more walkers and runners who fundraise, the more meals we can provide to clients like Erica.

“Can you please tell everyone I love them and I’m so thankful for being part of this? I didn’t know what I was going to do after surgery. No one has ever done anything like this for me before. I know there are so many people involved and I love all of them and I know I’m not the only one being helped. I hope to help cook when I’m feeling better to give back.”
