Dhruv Suryadevara

Foodshare had the great pleasure of presenting Dhruv Suryadevara, one of our youngest volunteers, with the President's Volunteer Service Award. This certificate was awarded to Dhruv by Points of Light and The Corporation for National and Community Service for his efforts to better the community through volunteer service.

Bloomfield, CT

Foodshare was very touched to receive a food donation from one of our youngest and most dedicated volunteers. Dhruv reached out to family and friends from 18 different households to ask for support in collecting non-perishable items for Foodshare. Thanks to his generosity we will be able to provide 187 meals to our neighbors that struggle with food insecurity! Thank you and great job, Dhruv!

About Foodshare

Foodshare is leading an informed, coordinated response to hunger in our community. Foodshare is the Feeding America food bank serving Connecticut’s Hartford and Tolland counties, where 127,000 people struggle with hunger. In partnership with the food industry, donors, community leaders and volunteers, Foodshare works to maximize access to nutritious food and other resources that support food security. Last year, Foodshare distributed nearly 12 million meals worth of food to a network of 300 local food pantries, meal programs, and Mobile Foodshare sites. And, because it takes more than food to end hunger, Foodshare collaborates with anti-hunger organizations, policy makers, and the broader community to build effective solutions to end hunger.

Foodshare is changing what it means to be a food bank. For more information, visit, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
