Our Partnerships Start by Listening

Let's discuss your goals, audience, and vision. From there, we will build an initiative that works for your business, the Vermont Foodbank, and our mutual supporters. Through thoughtful collaboration, we work with businesses of all sizes to develop mutually beneficial partnerships. For the Vermont Foodbank, that partnership provides funding and critical support for our mission. For our partners, it offers an opportunity to be part of the solution. Let's work together to activate your network of customers, colleagues, and employees - and show them what you stand for.
