Hunger challenges
PUTNAM — The Interfaith Human Services of Putnam (IHSP) plans to “Squash Hunger” this September
September is Hunger Awareness Month.  To raise awareness, ISHP has organized a series of challenges among various facets of the Greater Putnam area, designed to raise awareness to the struggle of many families to put nutritious food on the table, & help fill Daily Bread’s shelves with food. The challenges are:
*Pasta Challenge between Financial Institutions.  The participating institutions will be accepting donations of pasta from employees, customers, and the general public during the month of September. Participants are: Putnam Bank (2015 winners), Charter Oak Federal Credit Union, CNB (a division of bankESB), Core Plus Federal Credit Union & First Niagara Bank. 
*Tuna Challenge between Manufacturers.  Employees are asked to donate cans of tuna during Sept. Participants are: Circle of Hope at US Button (2015 winners), Linemaster Switch, National Chromium, Nutmeg Container & Staples.
*Spaghetti Sauce Challenge between the faith groups in the Greater Putnam area.
*Dr. Barks Chiropractic Office is supporting “Squash Hunger” by collecting soup & jelly.
IHSP encourages families and other organizations to have their own events, either educating about the issues of hunger in their communities or collecting donations. For further information, contact Kathi Peterson at 860-928-0169 or 860-455-3552,or check:
