Feeding Our Neighbors
Did You know?
1 in 4 Vermonters are face food insecurity right now.
We are partnering with Feeding Chittenden to raise funds to help our neighbors facing food insecurity.
Recently, after reading several articles from local news outlets, we became aware of a serious problem facing fellow Vermonters. 1 in 4 Vermonters are facing food insecurity. Food insecurity was an issue pre-pandemic, but as the pandemic continues, this issue has severely worsened.
We decided we wanted to do something to help, so we partnered with Feeding Chittenden to hold a fundraiser. Feeding Chittenden was created to fight hunger and food insecurity faced by households throughout Chittenden County. Feeding Chittenden is managed by the Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO) and together they serve food to more than 12,000 people each year through a variety of programs.
With the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and economic downturn, 40% of Vermonters have faced job disruptions (25% lost jobs, 35% reduced income, 20% furloughed). People are having to make difficult decisions, such as whether to pay rent, buy food, or purchase other essential items. As winter approaches these decisions will become even more difficult and the struggle will intensify.
Here at Bluehouse Group, we know that a strong community is the backbone of the Vermont lifestyle. Together, let's make a meaningful difference by providing food and wellbeing to our neighbors facing hunger and food insecurity.
Please consider donating to Feed Chittenden through our fundraiser. 100% of funds donated will go to Feeding Chittenden.
