Vermont Foodbank believes that hunger and food insecurity are challenges that can be solved! While we work each day to provide nourishing food to people across Vermont, we are also working to change systems and policies that have allowed hunger and food insecurity to persist. To do this, we engage neighbors with lived expertise as well as partners, donors, and supporters interested in advocating for change to join this important work.

2 in 5 People in Vermont Are Food Insecure

Food insecurity is economic insecurity – if people have enough money to cover their basic needs, they can also afford the food they need and want. People experience food insecurity in every community in Vermont.

Vermont Foodbank Advocacy Alerts are the best way to stay up-to-date on our advocacy efforts and to be alerted to ways you can help us in this work.

Food insecurity for any family in Vermont is not OK. We have an urgent and important need right now and we look to our state leaders to fund solutions to addressing hunger today."
