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.
The Food Shelf’s Grocery Distribution shelves have recently been transformed! Thanks to City Market and the March proceeds from their Rally for Change program the Food Shelf has been host to artist, Tara Goreau, throughout the months of April and May.
With the support of City Market, Tara Goreau has designed and painted a mural celebrating the people, food and programs of the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. Tara’s colorful mural subjects include volunteer homebound delivery drivers, farmers who donate to the Food Shelf, community supporters of our work and families coming to pick up food from the Food Shelf. Tara’s mural has brightened up our grocery room considerably.
Thanks to City Market and Tara, our food shelf space now reflects the welcoming, cheerful and warm atmosphere created by volunteers and staff.
