Thank You, Point To Point Riders, Runners, Sponsors and Supporters!


Another August has come and gone and with it, another Point To Point! This year nearly 400 athletes joined us in Ascutney to ride bikes and run on the trails to raise money to fight hunger in Vermont. Thanks to everybody who came out to run and ride, to fix bikes, to cheer on friends and family members, to donate, and to support the event.

Remembering Tom Abbiati


Earlier this month Tom Abbiati, a dedicated Foodbank staff member passed away. For the past fifteen years he worked hard every day to ensure that all people in Vermont had access to the food they needed. His kind, thoughtful nature touched the lives of us all. He truly spent his life making the community a better place and bringing joy to the people around him. He will be sorely missed, but his legacy lives on through the lives he changed and the hope he brought to people throughout Vermont.
