Why SunCommon Supports the Vermont Foodbank
Today’s guest blog post comes from SunCommon. This holiday season they are working with the Foodbank to fight hunger.
This holiday season SunCommon has partnered with the Vermont Foodbank in an effort to progress our own mission – to use our business as a force for good – while supporting that of another organization.
We’ve found kindred spirits at the Vermont Foodbank, another organization focused on addressing global issues while working at a local scale. SunCommon addresses climate change by helping Vermonters make the switch to renewable energy, thereby reducing our impact on our environment. The Foodbank is addressing the vast problem of food insecurity by providing our neighbors around the state struggling with hunger with as much local, healthy food as they can.
1 in 4 Vermonters are facing hunger right now. We hope to use our business to put food on the table for our neighbors this holiday season.
So, How does the Holiday Giving program work?
For every household that checks out solar this holiday season by scheduling a free home assessment, SunCommon is donating $30 – the equivalent of 50 meals – to support families facing food insecurity.
We’ve coordinated with food coops and retail shops around the state to give our community organizers a platform, to talk face-to-face with folks in our communities about the impacts of climate change and food insecurity. And every week, dozens of Vermont families are raising their hands to do their part for the planet and for their neighbors facing hunger.
As a community of more than 5,000 families powered by SunCommon solar systems, our customers are also pledging to support this effort by sharing the news of our efforts with their friends, families, and neighbors, or simply by making a direct donation to the Foodbank.
Thanks to some of our partners in this work:
We believe that everyone has the right to a healthy environment and brighter future. At SunCommon, we strive to address the challenge of climate change. The Vermont Foodbank tackles the challenge of food insecurity. Two great organizations doing our bit.
