Meet Kate. Kate represents the thousands of Vermont children who struggle with hunger.


The Vermont Foodbank provides 8 million pounds of food to as many as 86,000 Vermonters, 34% of whom are children under the age of 18.

According to USDA, 1 in 5 Vermont children are hungry.

A donation of $1 can provide 3 meals to Vermont children in need.

27,000 Vermont children are food insecure-unable to consistently access adequate amounts of nutritious food that is necessary for a healthy life.

13% of Vermont’s households are struggling with hunger or “food insecurity”.

Last year the Vermont Foodbank distributed more than 8 million pounds of food.

For every $10 donation the Vermont Foodbank can acquire & distribute 20 pounds of food, the equivalent of nearly 30 meals.

Nearly 90,000 Vermonters are at risk of hunger.

8,200 Vermonters access a food shelf in VT this week.
