Youth Programs

The Vermont Foodbank has a number of programs that are geared towards the needs of our most valuable resource: Vermont's children.


BackPack Program

For most kids, a backpack might contain books and school supplies. For children participating in the BackPack Program, it means a weekend with a full belly. Learn more about the BackPack Program.


School Food Pantry To-Go

School Food Pantry To-Go helps alleviate childhood hunger in Vermont through the distribute of fresh produce twice per month on school grounds. Learn more about School Food Pantry To-Go.
