A Night to End Hunger in Fairfield County
Community Plates, a national hunger relief organization based in Norwalk, will host its third annual fall fundraiser, A Night to End Hunger in Fairfield County, from 6 to 10 p.m., October 1, at The Loading Dock, in Stamford.
Honoring Community Plates’ food runners and supporters, the event will highlight the organization’s 2014 goals and unveil the new GoRescue software, which coordinates hundreds of food runners to provide direct-transfer services from food donors to receiving agencies.
Founded in 2011, Community Plates has delivered over 2 million meals in three U.S. markets with plans to expand to four more areas in 2014. A $20,000 grant from the Fairfield County Community Foundation supported the development of GoRescue software.
