Runners help Connecticut Food Bank replenish its shelves

Connecticut residents participated in a race yesterday to help replenish the Connecticut Food Bank?s shelves.

Participants brought food or monetary donations before taking part in the race.

Due to Tropical Storm Irene and last month?s nor?easter, thousands were left without food for more than a week in some cases, according to officials.

Organizers say over 400 runners participated.
