Jannotta family once again helps feed the hungry

The 16th Jannotta Family Feed raised more than $15,000 for the Connecticut Food Bank. The event was held at Michael Gennaro’s Restaurant on Nov. 24.

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Attorney General George Jepsen, First Selectman Michael Tetreau, state Sen.-elect Tony Hwang, state Rep. Brenda Kupchick and Probate Judge Daniel Caruso were in attendance supporting the event.

Anthony Jannotta and his wife, Brenda, are the founders of the family feed that has raised more than $200,000. Their children, Eleanor and John, have made the event part of their family’s holiday tradition.

“I am so thankful to our friends for their ongoing generosity and support for such a worthy cause during this holiday tradition,” Anthony said.

Al and Jeannette Jannotta, Anthony’s parents, have been instrumental in making the event a success.

“It is a small, but powerful example of what we can do as a community and are proud to partner with the CFB in their fight against hunger,” Al said.

“The Jannotta family’s compassion for feeding needy neighbors is truly remarkable, said Nancy Carrington, food bank president and chief executive officer. “Their passion in spurring others to help has enabled the family to donate to Connecticut Food Bank in excess of $200,000 over 16 years.”
