Share the Love 2019 with Twin City Subaru and the Vermont Foodbank

It's that time of year again, with snow already on the ground and folks around the state making plans for the holidays to spend time catching up with family and friends over a hot meal. Every year as we exchange gifts and warm ourselves by the fire, our struggles seem to melt away, and it's easy to forget how many people right here in Vermont are finding it difficult just to provide food for themselves and their families.

Defend access to 3SquaresVT

2019-11-22T14:23:47-05:00

As Vermonters turn on their furnaces and prepare for Thanksgiving, the Trump administration is once again taking aim at some of our most vulnerable neighbors. The White House and USDA recently announced their third attempt in the past 12 months to go around Congress and take food away from millions of working families, people with disabilities, and older Americans in need. A new proposed rule change would cut SNAP (known in Vermont as 3SquaresVT) benefits by $4.5 billion over five years, including a yearly cut of over $25 million in Vermont.
