Our Food Pantry is open 9 am – 4 pm Monday - Friday. Community members can come once a week for groceries, canned & dry goods, prepared meals, toiletries, etc. Our neighbors who access this program are able to select from a variety of fresh produce, baked goods, packaged meals and shelf-stable grocery items. We provide about a week’s supply of groceries to households during each visit.

If possible, please bring your own bags, as we have a limited number of boxes. To allow for an optimal market experience, 4 households can come in at a time and are allotted 15 minute shopping time.

Our food shelf helps between 9,000 and 10,000 people each year access the food they need to stay healthy and active.

Questions about accessing this program can be directed to Edi Abeneto, our Grocery Distribution Coordinator at (802) 658-7939 ext. 23 or by emailing



As a Food Shelf volunteer, you’ll experience endless opportunities to learn, grow, and play a rewarding role in addressing hunger in your neighborhood. You'll be performing tasks such as stocking shelves, organizing food donations and finding specific items for recipients.
