Hunger exists throughout Connecticut, in our cities, suburbs and rural communities.
How 2-1-1 can help.
A woman requested food resources for her mother who had high prescription bills. The 2-1-1 specialist provided referrals for prescription assistance and four local food pantries. On a follow-up phone call a week later, the specialist learned that the caller was able to get food pantry help, signed up for a co-op, and applied for prescription assistance.
