25 KEYS TO25 YEARS OF SUCCESS 2006-2007 ANNUAL REPORT CONNECTICUT FOOD BANK: 25 KEYS TO 25 YEARS OF SUCCESS On April 14, 1982, a group of volunteers signed the Certificate of Incorporation for Connecticut Food Bank. The volunteers thought the Food Bank would be a temporary solution to the temporary problem of hunger. Little did they know what was to come. Twenty-five years later, Connecticut Food Bank is an essential part of nearly every community in our six-county service area. THROUGHOUT THIS REPORT IS A LIST OF KEYS TO THE SUCCESS OF CONNECTICUT FOOD BANK. 1 25 JOHN VAN HENGEL Known as the father of food banking, John van Hengel revolutionized hunger-relief in 1967 by establishing the world’s first food bank, St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix, Arizona. John worked tirelessly to build a bridge between those who had an abundance of food – farmers and the food industry – and people who were hungry or unable to afford adequate nutrition. John also established the national organization known today as America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network in 1976. “It’s amazing how many people are being fed because of this crazy little thing we started. We’re feeding millions,” John said in 1992. “But it scares me to look back because I just had no idea it would grow into this.”* John van Hengel died in October 2005 at the age of 83. * Source: America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network 5 TABLE OF CONTENTS 2 MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 3 CONNECTICUT FOOD BANK STAFF 5 MEMBER PROGRAMS 9 FOOD INDUSTRY PRODUCT DONORS 10 COMMUNITY FOOD DONORS & FOOD DRIVES 13 HARVEST CLUB DONORS 16 VOLUNTEERS 18 INDIVIDUAL DONORS 21 FOOD DISTRIBUTION CHART 35 BOARD OF DIRECTORS 38 BUSINESS, FOUNDATION AND ORGANIZATION DONORS 42 CORPORATE MATCHING GIFT CONTRIBUTORS, IN-KIND DONORS 2 MARK PATTON In January 1982, as long lines formed at the Community Soup Kitchen in New Haven, a volunteer named Mark Patton ladled soup for the guests. The soup kitchen director suggested that a more reliable, consistent source of food was needed. That remark inspired Mark to develop the concept of Connecticut Food Bank. From a borrowed desk and telephone at the offices of Christian Community Action in New Haven, Mark worked to create an organization that could serve as a centralized warehouse to receive large quantities of donated food for distribution to local programs feeding hungry people. 43 FINANCIAL INFORMATION Through our affiliation with America’s Second Harvest – The Nation’s Food Bank Network (A2H), Connecticut Food Bank is able to obtain large donations of grocery products from national manufacturers and growers. As a member food bank, CFB adheres to a high standard of operation in warehouse management, food distribution programs and record keeping. Under these standards, A2H inspects CFB’s warehouses and operations every two years. In 2002, America’s Second Harvest established Hunger Awareness Day to “raise awareness about domestic hunger and also mobilize Americans to take action by donating time or money.” For Hunger Awareness Day on June 5, 2007, Connecticut Food Bank issued a Food Stamp Challenge, designed to help people understand the harsh reality of hunger in a meaningful way. AMERICA’S SECOND HARVEST Participants were challenged to live for one week on the maximum food stamp allotment, $5 per day per individual. Through the Food Stamp Challenge, CFB hoped to elicit greater public awareness about the difficulty of being food insecure and spark improvements to the social services safety net. 3 MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Francine Du Verger Nancy L. Carrington Since Connecticut Food Bank’s inception, the past 25 years have been marked with fortunate – and unfortunate – growth. With the community’s help, we have: • Fed more and more people in need. • Increased the amount of food distributed each year. • Expanded our educational and public awareness campaigns about hunger and poverty. • Improved services to our network of member programs. • Launched new initiatives and programs, including Food Rescue Operation, Meat The Need and Kids’ BackPack Program. • Strengthened the infrastructure and operations in warehousing, transportation, staffing and technology. • Grown the number of donors of food, funds and time. We look back on these 25 years as being phenomenal in so many ways, but we have not reached our ultimate goal: putting ourselves out of business because no one needs food assistance. Of paramount importance is striving to get more food to more people each day. So we will keep on doing what we know best – feeding people in need. No one person can solve the problem of hunger alone, but together we have fed, and we will feed, hundreds of thousands of our neighbors. Francine Du Verger PRESIDENT, CFB BOARD OF DIRECTORS Nancy L. Carrington EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SO WE WILL KEEP ON DOING WHAT WE KNOW BEST – FEEDING PEOPLE IN NEED. 2 4 1 2 6 7 11 12 16 17 STAFF 3 How could Connecticut Food Bank accomplish all that it has in the last 25 years without the hard work of its dedicated staff? They have served and continue to serve as good stewards of CFB, advancing the efforts to fulfill the mission of alleviating hunger. Through the years, CFB has seen many staff members come and go, but each of them – their talents, skills and work – has taken the organization to the next level. 4 5 8 9 10 13 14 15 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 Nancy L.

Bush’s Thousand Points of Light. CFB has established the annual Bill Liddell award to honor outstanding service. Bill died in April 2004 at the age of 84. Upon retirement from the Asgrow Seed Company in the early 1980s, lifelong gardener Bill Liddell planted fruits and vegetables on his three-quarter acre plot in Hamden in a way that maximized his yield. When his bounty outgrew his family and friends, Bill called Connecticut Food Bank to ask if he could donate his fresh produce. From that August 1985 call and throughout the following decade, this extraordinary partnership brought in 104 tons of donations, an average of 30,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables per harvest. Bill’s commitment to his community earned him national recognition. He appeared on CBS’s Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt and ABC’s Good Morning America, and also was named as one of 6 NANCY CARRINGTON After graduating from Hartwick College in upstate New York, Nancy Carrington worked for a snack food manufacturer for ten years. While there, she saw how wasteful the food industry could be. If there were mistakes in pricing, codes or ingredients printed on packaging, the industry would discard the flawed packaging with the wholesome food inside. Repackaging the food was considered too time consuming and costly. In 1982, Nancy went to the University of New Haven to pursue her Master’s Degree in Business Administration. As she was about to graduate in 1984, Nancy read that Connecticut Food Bank was becoming an affiliate of Second Harvest, a nationally recognized food bank network. Nancy met with Mark Patton to see if her background might be an asset for CFB. Nancy was hired to solicit donations from the food industry. Five years later, in 1989, she became Executive Director of CFB. She continues to serve in this capacity today. During Nancy’s tenure, Connecticut Food Bank has grown from a fledgling, grassroots organization to an established, successful non-profit. 4 “THIS IS THE MOST SATISFYING AND REWARDING WORK I CAN IMAGINE,” NANCY SAYS OF HER CAREER AT CONNECTICUT FOOD BANK. IN 1982, CONNECTICUT FOOD BANK PROVIDED FOOD TO 70 AGENCIES AND THEIR PROGRAMS. TODAY, CFB PROVIDES FOOD TO 657 PROGRAMS. 7 Perhaps our greatest allies – and inspiration – in the fight against hunger are the staff of our member programs who see firsthand the impact of hunger in our communities. Connecticut Food Bank provides wholesome, donated food to a network of charitable programs that feed people in need. These programs include soup kitchens, food pantries, emergency shelters and residential facilities. Served by CFB’s Fairfield branch warehouse. Served by CFB’s subsidiary, Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County, Stamford. (NL) Served by CFB’s subsidiary, the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center, New London. (W) Served by CFB’s Waterbury branch warehouse. All other programs are served by Connecticut Food Bank’s East Haven (EH) warehouse. (F) (LF) MEMBER PROGRAMS Every two years, Connecticut Food Bank holds a food and nutrition conference for our member programs. The conference held in September 2006 featured workshops which gave providers a chance to learn, share and strategize about alleviating hunger in Connecticut’s communities. Speakers included Rigoberto Lopez, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Connecticut, and Patricia Wilson-Coker, then-Commissioner of the State Department of Social Services.

Connecticut Food Bank could have never distributed more than 156 million pounds of food over the last 25 years without the generous support of the food industry. Traditionally, waste in the food industry has been a serious challenge. What did a company do with product that had an ounce too little in each container? What about test market items that failed?

O’Neill and the Connecticut General Assembly passed the bill authorizing the State Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SSNAP). The bill at the time allocated $200,000 for Connecticut Food Bank to purchase high-protein food items. Today, CFB receives $715,000 in SSNAP funding, which provides more than 600,000 pounds of food. The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a federal program aimed at distributing USDA surplus commodities through food banks to hungry people. In 1988-1989, Gov. O’Neill and the General Assembly allocated $650,000 in bond funding toward the construction of CFB’s East Haven warehouse. In 1984, former Connecticut Governor William O’Neill started The Governor’s Care & Share, a statewide food and funds drive. Every governor has since followed his example, appealing to all Connecticut residents, especially state employees, to support the state’s food banks. “CONNECTICUT FOOD BANK IS AN EXTREMELY COST-EFFICIENT, ON-GOING EFFORT TO GET FOOD TO THE NEEDY OF OUR STATE,” SAID U.S. SENATOR CHRISTOPHER DODD, AS QUOTED IN THE 1985-1986 ANNUAL REPORT. (top) U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman donates a turkey to CFB Executive Director Nancy L. Carrington at “Fill the Bowl.” (left) Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro visited Connecticut Food Bank in November 1999 to present a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition to our staff and volunteers. While she was here, she helped staff from a member agency load Thanksgiving food into his vehicle. 14 12 FUNDRAISING EVENTS The Greater New Haven Emergency Food Council, a coalition of agencies, first organized the Walk Against Hunger in New Haven in 1977. In 1990, Connecticut Food Bank continued their tradition, organizing the annual event. In 2006, a second Walk Against Hunger site was added in Waterbury. Overall in 2007, the 31st Annual New Haven and 2nd Annual Waterbury Walk Against Hunger, presented by Webster Bank, hosted 900 walkers and volunteers and raised more than $148,000 for CFB’s hungerrelief efforts. At the 14th annual Donor Recognition Luncheon, Connecticut Food Bank recognized Project Green, the Jannotta Family and Whole Foods Market with partnership awards for their exceptional service, support and dedication to the fight against hunger. Project Green, a New Haven-based alternative to incarceration program, was honored for their outstanding volunteer efforts. The Jannotta Family of Fairfield was recognized for their generous financial support through the annual “Jannotta Family Feed” campaign. Whole Foods Market was honored for their on-going donations of food products. The prestigious Bill Liddell Award was presented to the Stop & Shop Supermarket Company for their longtime partnership with Connecticut Food Bank through food and monetary donations. 15 13 THANKSGIVING FOR ALL In 1994, Connecticut Food Bank began a concerted effort to provide Thanksgiving for All, so that if only for one day, there would be no hunger in Connecticut. Food drives were conducted. Funds were solicited to purchase turkeys and fresh produce. Volunteers were enlisted to help with the collections. The media assisted by publicizing the efforts. After 13 years of Thanksgiving for All campaigns, more than 212,500 turkeys and millions of pounds of holiday fare have been distributed, including 23,864 turkeys and 456,791 pounds of trimmings in 2006. 14 VOLUNTEERS Connecticut Food Bank relies heavily on our dedicated volunteers who unselfishly donate their time, energy and talents. They assist us in carrying out our daily operations. Volunteers sort through “salvage” – donated cans and boxes of food with cosmetic flaws – to retrieve usable products. Volunteers also work in the office, folding and preparing mailings, performing data entry, and filing. At special events, volunteers are our greatest assets. During food drives, they stand outside supermarkets in freezing or sweltering temperatures to accept donations of food from the public. At the Walk Against Hunger, they staff registration tables, serve as crossing guards and assist in the distribution of prizes and snacks. Over the last 25 years, volunteers have contributed more than 100,000 hours of time to Connecticut Food Bank, including 13,285 hours during the 2006-2007 fiscal year. That is the equivalent of nearly seven fulltime staff members. 16 In February 2007, CFB hosted a “Sort and Mingle for Singles” event. Volunteers were invited to the East Haven warehouse to sort donated food and meet other community-minded people. VOLUNTEERS Individuals Thank you to everyone who volunteers for CFB, especially these individuals and groups who helped out during fiscal year 2006-2007.

It wasn’t until a few years after CFB was founded that the organization finally got its first computer for staff members to share. Today, all office staff members have access to voicemail, fax machines, e-mail, laser printers, color printers, photocopiers, computers, computerized inventory, and computerized donation records, which have become standard equipment for CFB. In 1999, CFB’s website, www.ctfoodbank.org, was launched with the kind support of public relations firm Mason & Madison of New Haven. The website provides a portal to disseminate information about CFB to our supporters and, in reality, the world. Subsequent improvements to the website include the ability to accept on-line credit card contributions, a section devoted to helping kids understand the problem of hunger, and several pages translated into Spanish with the help of volunteer Gerry Zayas. In 2004, Connecticut Food Bank took advantage of another advance in technology, the Virtual Food Drive, a user-friendly solution developed by another non-profit, Aidmatrix. On CFB’s website, with pointand-click simplicity, a donor can click on a food item and donate the purchase price of that item to CFB. Funds donated to CFB are used to purchase the foods that are most needed. 15 TECHNOLOGY 25 INDIVIDUAL DONORS CONTINUED $100.00 - $249.99 (cont’d) Margaret Ferrante Shannon F.

Last year, a grant from ConAgra Foods’ Feeding Children Better Program and America’s Second Harvest rounded out our fleet with a 14-foot refrigerated truck to be used exclusively for the Meat The Need initiative. With a fleet of five trucks and two vans, Connecticut Food Bank collects and delivers donated food throughout Connecticut, and even Massachusetts. The purchase of many of the vehicles has been made possible through corporate and foundation grants. In June 2001, America’s Second Harvest, Newman’s Own and Ford Motor Company donated a Ford Econoline van to assist with picking up small food donations as well as food drives. A 2002 grant from the Starwood Foundation enabled the purchase of a 14-foot truck with a liftgate. This truck, now refrigerated, is used for collections and deliveries for the Food Rescue Operation and Kids’ BackPack Program. Grants from the State Department of Social Services and the NewAlliance Foundation funded a 26-foot 17 AMERICA’S SECOND HARVEST HUNGER STUDY 33% were children and 7% were elderly. The report also illustrated that hunger does not discriminate – recipients were 28% Hispanic, 29% Caucasian and 34% African-American. Every four years, America’s Second Harvest commissions a survey of its member food banks and their member programs to get a picture of hunger-relief efforts across the country. Hunger in America 2006 reported an estimated 24-27 million people received food assistance in 2005.

They are contracted to serve the six towns in lower Fairfield County. In July 1993, Waterbury became an official branch warehouse site. In November of that year, the branch moved from the Bunker Hill Church to Thomaston Avenue. Nine years later, the warehouse moved to its current leased location at 56 Eagle Street. The Waterbury branch warehouse serves agencies in Northern New Haven, Western Fairfield and Litchfield counties. In 1997, the Fairfield branch warehouse began operations at a warehouse at 74 Linwood Avenue. The Fairfield branch warehouse serves agencies in Greater Bridgeport and upper Fairfield County. In 2000, the Gemma E. Moran United Way/Labor Food Center, located in New London, became an official Subsidiary Distribution Organization of Connecticut Food Bank. They are contracted to serve New London County. Connecticut Food Bank began operations in July 1982 on the third story of Bullards Furniture warehouse at the corner of Ferry and Water streets in New Haven. The space was unheated, had no telephone, and the elevator broke regularly. Three months later, CFB moved to the old New Haven Clock Factory on Wallace Street. That space, with its makeshift dock, had oak floors that gave way under the weight of the forklift. In November 1983, CFB moved to the old Good Humor building on James Street in New Haven. And finally, in 1989, CFB moved to a vacant warehouse at 150 Bradley Street in East Haven. In 1990, an addition was built to accommodate salvage sorting and a large freezer to store increased donations of frozen foods. Ten years later, a second addition was built to expand the agency shopping area, freezer and cooler space. This addition reflected the food industry’s trend toward donating greater amounts of produce, prepared and perishable foods, as well as more donations of health and beauty care items and cleaning products. The new area also included a test kitchen that enables cooking demonstrations and tastings aimed at encouraging member agency representatives to accept donations of unfamiliar food items. In 2002, a generator was installed to ensure uninterrupted electrical power to the facility in the event of a natural or manmade disaster. 32 INDIVIDUAL DONORS CONTINUED $100.00 - $249.99 (cont’d) Kristen Scallon Arlene Scanlan John & Lynda Scanlon Raymond J.

Carrington, CFB Executive Director BOARD MEMBER, EX-OFFICIO 35 20 UNIQUE COAST-TO-COAST FEATS Coast, down the East Coast, and back to Portland, visiting food banks along the way. After sleeping in shelters and on the side of the road, he walked through the doors of Connecticut Food Bank on August 16 that same year, inspiring CFB staff and volunteers. It is 3,087 miles from Stockton, California, to Willimantic, Connecticut. For 37 days in June and July 2000, Ray Aramini, a juvenile probation officer from Willimantic, pedaled across the United States to raise awareness and funds for Covenant Soup Kitchen and Connecticut Food Bank. Called “Bike For Bread,” this was not Ray’s first (or last) longdistance bicycle ride. In February 1995, Don March, a former food bank employee from Cadillac, Michigan, had an adventurous idea to generate support and awareness for food banks across the country. This 60-year-old man, carrying his 30-pound backpack, walked 20 miles a day from Portland, Oregon, to the East The original Connecticut Food Bank logo was a by-product of its grassroots beginning: a simple loaf of bread. In early 2007, the logo was updated to reflect the growth of the organization. After 25 years of operation, CFB is no longer a grassroots effort. It is a business engaged in providing more than just bread to thousands of people in need each year, through food and monetary donations from supporters and the hard work of employees and volunteers. The creative team at How2Design in Guilford donated its time and talent to design a new logo. The new logo represents the act of coming together to alleviate hunger. The symmetry of the words “food” and “bank” – as well as the arrows underneath – imply a relay of help and support for the mission of CFB. The curved “Connecticut” at the top represents the overarching support of the community. NEW LOGO 36 21 THE MEDIA Throughout the last 25 years, the media – daily and weekly newspapers, and radio and television stations – has been very supportive of Connecticut Food Bank and our mission. By reporting CFB’s message, they have educated the public and rallied the community in support of the mission to alleviate hunger. The media assists with conducting and publicizing food drives and fundraising campaigns, including sponsoring the Walk Against Hunger and several Thanksgiving For All food drives. From 1990 through 1992, the Feed Connecticut Telethon, sponsored by the Connecticut Broadcasters Association, raised funds for food banks in Connecticut. To that point, it was the only time that all six commercial television stations broadcast the same event simultaneously. In 2001, the Ad Council developed a national multimedia public service campaign aimed at publicizing the problem of childhood hunger. The series of print, radio and television advertisements depicted children and their families struggling with hunger. In 2006, Connecticut Food Bank’s newest media partner, Connecticut Magazine, chose CFB as the beneficiary of their annual event, Best of Connecticut. The event recognized magazine readers’ choices for the best food, beverages and entertainment that Connecticut has to offer. More than $21,000 was raised for CFB, through ticket sales, silent auction and merchandise sales. 22 (top) A Foxwoods chef heated things up at the Best of Connecticut event, (left) while the Chef-Owner from Min Ghung Asian Bistro in Glastonbury served samples from their Asian fusion menu. 37 BUSINESS, FOUNDATION AND ORGANIZATION DONORS Connecticut Food Bank is supported by a wealth of schools, businesses, places of worship, corporations and foundations.

Produce for People, launched August 1998, is an outreach program for local grassroots organizations, senior citizen housing complexes and tenant councils in low-income neighborhoods. By directly providing food to these groups dedicated to helping their neighborhoods, CFB introduces them to our work and encourages them to become incorporated non-profits and CFB members. In October 2001, CFB assumed responsibility for the New Haven-based food rescue program known as Rachel’s Table. Through the program named FRO (Food Rescue Operation), CFB collects prepared and perishable foods unserved by caterers, restaurants and dining halls and distributes the food directly to soup kitchens and shelters. The FRO was expanded in 2006 to include Extra Helpings, which takes the program one step further and asks restaurants to prepare extra servings of food specifically for donation. Started in May 2005, Community Pantries is a program of direct distribution of fresh food to residents of 11 Housing Authority New Haven sites. Residents of the Housing Authority are among the city’s poorest residents and many have health concerns that require special diets. Many Housing Authority New Haven sites are not located in close proximity to a supermarket, soup kitchen or pantry, and lack of transportation is an issue for many residents. CFB seeks to bridge this gap and provide nutritious foods to these residents. Meat The Need began in December 2005. Meat that has not been sold by the sell-by date is placed in the freezer by supermarket meat managers and picked up by a CFB driver. The frozen meat is then distributed to soup kitchens, emergency shelters and residential programs, providing much-needed protein to people in need. Kids’ BackPack Program expanded in September 2006 to include elementary school students in the Derby, Stratford, Danbury, New Haven and Middletown school districts. The program is designed to provide weekend sustenance for children. Public school staff members identify children who are “food-insecure,” meaning they lack enough food for proper nutrition. On Fridays, those children are given a backpack of kid-friendly food, provided by CFB, to ensure adequate nourishment over the weekend. 40 24 OUR NEIGHBORS IN NEED Our neighbors in need of food assistance are the very reason for Connecticut Food Bank’s existence. Throughout the last 25 years, CFB has fed more than one million people. Serving as our motivation and our driving force, they are: a single mother trying to finish school and provide for her two children; a family who is homeless because both parents lost their jobs more than a year ago; an elderly woman living on social security income who has to purchase expensive medications; a man living in a halfway house who is struggling with addiction; and many more individuals grappling with life’s challenges. It is for these people and the countless others that we do what we do. We work together – staff, Board of Directors, member programs, food industry donors, food drive donors, financial donors, volunteers and the media – to raise food, funds and awareness to provide for our neighbors in need. After all, in one of the wealthiest states in the nation, no one should go hungry. IN NOVEMBER 1982, CFB AND ITS MEMBERS PROVIDED 94,336 MEALS. IN NOVEMBER 2006, CFB AND ITS MEMBERS PROVIDED 1,581,249 MEALS. 41 CORPORATE MATCHING GIFT CONTRIBUTORS Companies that match the donations their employees make to Connecticut Food Bank have the power to turn five dollars into ten – and dinner for a family into a week’s worth of meals.

Our member programs are seeing more and more people who are in need of food assistance – people who are working but not making enough money to make ends meet. In the future, Connecticut Food Bank will continue to be creative in seeking out new sources of food, but also more innovative with the methods by which we distribute that food to our member programs. Another thing that is certain: Connecticut Food Bank cannot do it alone. We must partner with member agencies, individuals, the private sector, non-profit organizations and government to fulfill our mission of alleviating hunger. What does the future hold for Connecticut Food Bank? One thing is certain: the cost of doing business continues to rise – the cost of utilities to operate refrigerator and freezer units at all three warehouses; the cost of fuel to keep trucks and vans on the road to pick up and deliver food; the cost of maintenance for vehicles and warehouse equipment; and the cost of changing technology. The food industry has also encountered increasing costs to do business. As they tighten their belts, food donations suffer. Food production has been refined and companies are not making the errors which used to result in tons of donated food. Companies are using “just-in-time” production so excess stock does not accumulate. Items close to the expiration date are often being sold in bargain stores. Federal nutrition programs like The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) have declined in volume as the price of food has increased; thereby reducing the government’s buying power. ONE THING IS CERTAIN: THE CHALLENGE OF FEEDING OUR NEIGHBORS IN NEED WILL BECOME MUCH MORE DIFFICULT AS COSTS INCREASE AND FOOD SUPPLIES DWINDLE. Editor Julie T.
