American Eagle Financial Credit Union (AEFCU) employees collectively donated close to $6,000 to Hartford Food System via “Jean’s Fridays.” By making a weekly donation through payroll deduction, AEFCU employees can wear jeans to work each Friday. Hartford Food System was the Q4 2018 charity selected by the “Eagle Team.”

“American Eagle’s generous donation will be used toward the operation of our Hartford Mobile Market which delivers fresh fruits and vegetables to low-income Hartford neighborhoods with limited access to healthy foods,” said Jason Montgomery, Development Director of Hartford Food System.

Hartford Food System focuses on addressing the underlying causes of inadequate community access to healthy food. Its goals are reducing hunger, improving health and nutrition, and encouraging a sustainable and equitable food supply in Hartford neighborhoods. For more information, visit
