Fund Vermonters Feeding Vermonters to Provide Fresh, Local Food to People Facing Hunger
Nearly 1 in 3 Vermont households has been food insecure since the pandemic began, and households with children are twice as likely to be facing hunger. The state needs a creative solution to ensure that Vermont’s bounty of local, fresh food makes it onto the plates of those in need. The Alliance supports the Vermont Foodbank’s request for a $500,000 appropriation to fund Vermonters Feeding Vermonters, a program to purchase locally grown, fresh food directly from Vermont farmers and distributors to share with people facing hunger.
