Six VTC staff recently took an early morning trip to Barre, VT, to volunteer at the Vermont Foodbank. We helped pack 910 boxes (that's 30,030 lbs. and 45,000 meals) of commodity foods that are distributed throughout the state each month to supplement the diet of VT senior citizens, a population that is vulnerable to malnutrition. We had a great time engaging with our Vermont community and hope to help at the VT Foodbank again in the future!
