With less than 2 weeks felt to purchase a can of Nothing, it’s time to remind you about our campaign. With all that we have been focusing on in the last few weeks, I’m sure Nothing hasn’t been in the forefront of your mind. However I would suggest that if you are still looking for a way to get involved with Vermont’s long-term recovery, Nothing might be your answer.
The Vermont Foodbank, with the help of Citizens Bank and Hannaford Supermarkets, launched Nothing on July 14thas a way to help fight hunger in Vermont. Cans of Nothing were made available for $2.99 at every Hannaford in the state. That $2.99 purchase helps the Foodbank provide 18 nourishing meals for Vermonters in need.
To date, we have sold about 3,000 cans of Nothing. Do you have a can?
Yesterday, I heard a story from a woman who is keeping her can of Nothing in her cupboard. When asked by her daughter, “Why in the world are you keeping this in the cupboard?” Julie answered “Every time I go in the cupboard and grab something to eat, I’m reminded of those in my community, in my state, that don’t have that luxury. There are thousands of Vermonters who will eat nothing today.”
However you use your can of Nothing—please buy one! You are supporting your Foodbank and the 1 in 7 Vermonters who struggle with hunger.
