The Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf works to alleviate hunger by feeding people and cultivating opportunities. As the largest direct service emergency food provider in Vermont, CEFS serves over 12,000 people each year. With your continued support, we can bring about the change necessary to provide opportunities for those who need them most.
At the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, our mission is to feed people and create opportunities. And that focus lead us to an innovative idea. Our vision was to create and sell tasty food to those who can more easily afford it, from a food truck, and to use that money so that we can create and deliver free meals to those who need it most. From the very same truck. And we called it the Good Food Truck!
The Good Food Truck delivers free meals to low income community members every week from June through November at partner organizations and meal sites throughout Chittenden County. Customers of the Good Food Truck who have a household income at or below 185% of the federal poverty line are eligible for these free, delicious meals featuring globally-inspired flavors and local foods. Our goal this season is to provide 120 days of free meals to low income Vermonters.
When the Good Food Truck is not delivering free meals to low income community members, we are generating the money needed to keep that effort going. Throughout the “Food Truck” season, we operate as a typical food truck. We sell entrees, desserts, drinks and snacks from a fixed-price menu. 100% of the money we generate as a food truck goes towards providing free meals to low income Vermonters.
