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!

COMMUNITY MARKETING INTIATIVE
