Food insecurity is a serious issue in northern Vermont and there are many opportunities to become involved. The workshop involved food producers, farmers, distributors, retailers, schools, food pantries, meal sites, and anyone interested in food recovery and donation to:

  • Make connections with others working to increase food recovery & donation
  • Find out what can & cannot be donated & to where
  • Learn about liability protections & tax deductions & how food donation can save $
  • Hear success stories & ideas for new opportunities

The workshop featured representatives from the EPA, Vermont Foodbank, Salvation Farms, Neighbor-to-Neighbor, and Jasper Hill Farms. We also showed portions of Anthony Bourdain's movie, Wasted! The Story of Food Waste.
