The Vermont Foodbank is committed to ensuring that every person in our state has the food they need to reach their human potential. Those with the courage to ask for help must trust that the Foodbank and each of our Network Partner food shelves, meal sites, senior centers, shelters and youth programs care only about their human potential. Making that personal, trusting connection means that anyone—regardless of national origin, race, sexual orientation, religion, gender, culture, age, income level, disability or any other attribute—should feel the place they access food assistance is open, diverse and welcoming. In response to the current social and political climate, including the President’s recent Executive Order on immigration, The Vermont Foodbank wants every individual in need of food assistance to be assured that they are welcome to access the food and services we provide without concern for their safety or privacy.Girl with drink
