SerVermont - Feeding Chittenden
 
 
 
Founded in 1974, Feeding Chittenden (FC) was launched as the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf (CEFS). This new organization was created to fight hunger and food insecurity faced by households throughout Chittenden County. In response to the growing need, CEFS expanded programming to include hot meals every weekday and significantly increased the support and outreach programming offered in the community. In 2019, CEFS underwent a rebrand to become Feeding Chittenden, in order to better reflect the overall mission of providing food, community, and opportunity through progressive programming. Feeding Chittenden’s programming includes: Our Food Shelf, which provides curbside pick-up of pre-packaged boxes with fresh meat, produce, and perishable goods along with a bag of perishable, shelf-stable items. The Morning Meal Program, which serves a hot, to-go breakfast to anyone in need, including those who can't cook for themselves or need immediate relief. The Stay-at-Home Program, which delivers groceries to older adult and people with disabilities. The Community Kitchen Academy, which trains low-income individuals in food service work while preparing meals to distribute to the community. Students are on our Good Food Truck, serving hot meals as part of their curriculum. In addition, Feeding Chittenden has taken the lead in researching and implementing an online market that will best accommodate our visitors, which include New Americans, Veterans, older adults, working families, people with disabilities, and people experiencing homelessness. Through this online market, we are redesigning our food distribution system to promote choice while maintaining safety. Ultimately the goal is to provide community members in Chittenden, Addison and Franklin/Grand Isle counties with an easy-to-use online system that allows them to select the foods that best fit their needs, and then schedule a time for pick up or delivery.
