Food Shelf

We are here to help with nutritious food and other household supplies! 

A partnership with the Vermont Foodbank provides this site with access to a variety of staples, canned goods, dairy products, eggs, some meats, and fresh produce in season. In order to serve as many people as possible, we ask folks to limit their visits for their shelf stable and frozen food boxes to once every two weeks or twice a month.  Additionally, you may visit weekly to pick up a bag of fresh produce/bread. We often have household products, pet food and diapers on hand.

Our space is now open for indoor shopping and pick up!
