Feeding Chittenden works to alleviate hunger by feeding people and cultivating opportunities. As the largest direct service emergency food provider in Vermont, Feeding Chittenden serves over 12,000 people each year.
Through our food shelf, we provide a week's supply of groceries to local families and individuals experiencing food insecurity. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently offering prepackaged boxes of food for curb-side pick up.
HOT MEAL PROGRAM
Feeding Chittenden operates as the county’s largest hot meals program. We are open to the entire community, serving a hot meal every day. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we are currently offering to-go meals.
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.
In order to address hunger relief for populations with mobility issues, the program’s mission is to serve senior citizens and people with disabilities. Each month, staff and volunteers deliver a five-day supply of groceries to homebound clients, providing them with food and a much welcomed visit.
THE GOOD FOOD TRUCK
Feeding Chittenden hits the road in the Good Food Truck to help people who are hungry, create opportunities for people who are unemployed, and unite the community around the fight against hunger.
We're so grateful to all the donors and volunteers who make this work possible.
