Through our food shelf, we provide local families and individuals facing hunger with a week's supply of groceries and prepared meals. We also offer fresh produce and bread five days per week. More than 10,000 people every year are helped through this program alone.
HOT MEALS PROGRAM
As the county’s foremost hot meals program, we are open to the entire community and serve a hot meal every day. More than 60,000 meals are served in our cafeteria each year.
Each month, staff and volunteers deliver a week's supply of groceries to homebound clients, providing them with food and a much welcomed visit.
COMMUNITY KITCHEN ACADEMY
Community Kitchen Academy is a culinary job training program operated in partnership between Feeding Chittenden and the Vermont Foodbank. Students gain the professional and interpersonal skills they need to find and retain employment in the hospitality industry. Meals prepared in the program are used to fight hunger in the community.
THE GOOD FOOD TRUCK
Feeding Chittenden hits the road on the Good Food Truck. Through the power of good food, we feed our neighbors facing hunger, create opportunities for people who are unemployed, and unite the community around the fight against hunger.
With the help of partners in the community, Feeding Chittenden fights food waste and local hunger by rescuing over 1 million pounds of food every year. Edible, nutritious food from local farms, restaurants and grocery stores is saved from the landfill and used to fight hunger.
Together, we can provide food, community and opportunity for our neighbors facing hunger and food insecurity.
