Governor kicks off anti-hunger program at Macdonough!

MIDDLETOWN — More than 127,000 Connecticut children are at risk for going hungry, but the new No Kid Hungry program aims to get those kids fed.

That was the message Gov. Dannel Malloy shared at the No Kid Hungry kickoff event at Macdonough Elementary School Wednesday. The new program aims to end childhood hunger in Connecticut by 2015.

Middletown hosted the launch event for a good reason, explained Dawn Crayco, deputy director of End Hunger Connecticut! She said organizers chose Macdonough to host the kick-off because Middletown had made great strides toward providing healthy food to children, especially in the city’s North End.  “It’s just the epitome of what we’re trying to achieve statewide,” Crayco said.
