Our flagship program is our food shelf, where we provide a monthly five-day supply of groceries to families in need. We also offer fresh produce and bread five days per week.
THE GOOD FOOD TRUCK
The Good Food Truck is designed to use the power of healthy meals and good food to help people who are hungry, create opportunities for people who are under- or unemployed, and unite the community around the fight against hunger.
HOT MEAL PROGRAM
Feeding Chittenden operates as the county’s foremost hot meals program. We are open to the entire community, serving a hot meal every day,
Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 9:30am and Sunday mornings from 9:00am to 11:00am.
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. We currently serve 130 households through the Homebound Delivery program.
To all the service, staff and volunteers that make the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf what it is today.
