A discussion with Anna McMahon, Community Engagement Manager at Feeding Chittenden (formerly the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf) on the organization and programs.

Founded in 1974, Feeding Chittenden was launched as the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. This new organization was created to fight hunger and food insecurity faced by households throughout Chittenden County. The Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf initially operated a small pantry program that provided a three-day supply of groceries once per month to a few dozen families.

In response to a growing need for hunger relief services over the years, we have relocated twice to larger sites, including our 1994 move into our current location. Following this latest move to 228 North Winooski Avenue in Burlington, Feeding Chittenden began serving hot meals every weekday and significantly expanded the support and outreach programming we offer in the community.

Today, Feeding Chittenden serves more than 12,000 people each year through a variety of programs.

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
