Feed A Family This Holiday Season

In Vermont, one in four of us struggles with hunger.

This holiday season, Hunger Mountain Co-op, Rabble Rouser, LOCAL 22/LOCAL 44, and WDEV are coming together to help the Vermont Foodbank provide meals for our neighbors through the 3rd annual Feed A Family Food & Fund Drive.

Starting December 4, stock your shelves and help fight hunger in our community with special Buy One, Give One deals on pantry staples, including Annie’s mac & cheese, Muir Glen canned tomatoes, Cascadian Farm cereals, and Once Again peanut butter. All non-perishable food and personal care item donations are welcome and can be dropped off at the Co-op’s exit through December 12. Other high need items include dish soap, sponges, paper towels, toilet paper, and toiletries.

Feed A Family event with My Champlain Valley News stations

On Thursday, Dec. 12, the final day of the drive, LOCAL 22, LOCAL 44, and WDEV will gather at the Co-op to collect both food and funds. Shoppers can donate to the Vermont Foodbank by rounding up to the nearest dollar, or by adding a donation of any amount at the register. Hunger Mountain Co-op will match up to $1,000 in financial contributions that day.

All of the food and funds collected will directly benefit the Vermont Foodbank and central Vermont food shelves. Last year’s drive set a record with $9,338.12 and 1,072 pounds of food collected for the Foodbank. Since 2017, this event has raised an impressive $14,498.12 – equaling 24,163 meals for our neighbors in need.

Please join us in this vital effort again this year!
