HOPE runs the largest food shelf in the county, serving well over 600 people each month. In addition to non-perishable foods, the food shelf often has meat, milk, and eggs, thanks to the generosity of local farmers.
Our gleaning program salvages excess or unmarketable fruits and vegetables and diverts them to hungry households at charitable food outlets around the county and beyond.
Our Just Soup Project processes fresh, local produce for the freezer for use in the winter months.
Want to get involved? Join our growing group of volunteers with gleaning and food processing. Call (802) 388-3608 for more information.
If you need food:
Monday through Friday, from 9:30 to 3:30 we offer non-perishable foods, as well as dairy, produce, and baked items. When you arrive at HOPE, call us, or use the buzzer in the lobby, and we will take your order over the phone. Masks required. NOTE – On Tuesdays and Thursdays, between 10 and 2, check in with the attendant at the entrance.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, weather permitting, we offer a limited amount of supermarket surplus, bakery items and, during the growing season, fresh, locally grown produce. This is provided under a tent outside between 10 and 2. Please check in with the attendant near the building entrance. Wear a mask.
