Experience all Brattleboro has to offer.

An urban arts, local food and shopping oasis, Brattleboro boasts a thriving downtown community of independent merchants along three blocks on the banks of the Connecticut River. Dubbed “one of the best small towns in America,” this special place with a contagious community spirit, has enough love to go around – love of the arts, the great outdoors, true farm-to-table dining, rich history and heritage, and memorable experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.

EVERYONE EATS was extended through March 31, 2023. We will be distributing 2,100+ meals each week through September with the help of our community organizations in Brattleboro, Newfane, Guilford, Townsend Putney, Marlboro, and Dummerston.

Tuesdays, Wednesday & Thursdays after 5:00 at the Retreat Farm Farmstand: FREE.
Tuesday & Wednesday at Winston Prouty after 3:00: FREE.

With more than 200 volunteers, over 300,000 meals and many many pounds of Vermont produce and products the Everyone Eats continues to serve!

Statewide the many partnerships have generated over $22 million in revenue for Vermont restaurants who in turn have made prepared close to 3 million nourishing meals highlighting ingredients from VT farmers and food producers for neighbors experiencing food insecurity. This program is only possible because of the countless individuals who have stepped forward to help one another in times of need.

Thank you to the volunteers who support us!  Thank you to the 21 community organizations who distribute these meals. Thank you to the restaurants for your delicious meals!


We invite media writers and social media influencers to our community! We are specifically focusing on writers from the BIPOC community. Our goal is to provide a welcoming invitation to spend time in our community.

We have great news on a recent success: ZPOTS, our newest gallery on Main St. is included on HerMoney in a feature titled “Mother’s Day Gifts under $100“.
