Gathering and Sharing Quality Food

“Since the start of the pandemic,” says Vermont Foodbank CEO John Sayles, “1 in 3 Vermont residents have experienced hunger — which is unprecedented. We are extremely grateful to the Blue Trident Foundation for their matching pledge, which will result in a combined total of $50,000 in donations toward the fight against hunger in Vermont. With more people turning to charitable food for support than we’ve seen in the history of our organization, this gift will go a long way toward providing food for all of our communities across the state.”
