Hunger Free Vermont is an education and advocacy organization with the mission to end the injustice of hunger and malnutrition for all Vermonters. For 20 years, we have been a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to hunger prevention through expanding access to nutrition programs that nourish Vermont’s children and families.

Our 15-member staff leads a comprehensive and effective approach to addressing hunger in our state. Our team conducts outreach and education on the following nutrition programs:

  • School Meal Expansion assists schools in establishing and expanding school breakfast and lunch programs, which provide reliable sources of nutrition for school age children.
  • 3SquaresVT Outreach improves access to and particpation in 3SquaresVT (formerly the Food Stamp Program) which is one of the most reliable, consistent and dignified means to prevent hunger.
  • Out-of-School Time Nutrition establishes and expands opportunities for children to eat nutritious snacks and meals after school hours and during the summer months.
  • Early Childhood Nutrition Outreach helps child care centers provide nutritious meals through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).


Additionally, we implement advocacy and public education efforts including:

  • The Learning Kitchen (formerly Cooking for Life) empowers low-income Vermonters to make healthy choices through nutrition education, emphasizing the importance of regular physical activity, and improving cooking skills.
