ABOUT

Vermont Everyone Eats is funded by the federal Coronavirus Relief Fund and made possible through a grant provided by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development to Southeastern Vermont Community Action.

ShiftMeals and the Intervale Center have partnered to serve the Everyone Eats Program in Chittenden County as well as Healthy Roots in Franklin / Grand Isle, and Capstone Community Action in Central VT (Washington, Lamoille, Orange counties). 

HOW IT WORKS

Restaurants are paid to prepare nutritionally balanced meals for those impacted by COVID-19 by using 10% of VT products. Organizations work with Everyone Eats to request meals, or individuals can request meals. Individuals can both pick-up meals at public distribution spots or request meals to-go from restaurants through the Digital Voucher program. To find out where to get a meal, or how to sign up for the Digital Voucher program, learn more below!

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?

Everyone Eats is a program for “everyone” negatively impacted by COVID-19. You are eligible to receive meals if COVID-19 has made it harder to get food or you are experiencing food insecurity. Help yourself, help your community!

"Folks were so excited to get the meals from Three Penny Taproom...to have a cooked meal, and a delicious one at that, made their day!"

 –Karen, Central Vermont

We have connected with our neighbors in a whole new way. Our families are feeling uplifted and supported. Our team is feeling like we are finally able to give back in a way we wanted to during the Stay Home Stay Safe order. The need is heartbreaking and I think on our public distribution nights we have seen how widespread it is. The stories people have shared make all those dark cold nights so worth it. With our families we tend to have a good pulse on who is food insecure and internally support them, but there have been some surprises along the way. Food insecurity comes in many facets and this has helped to alleviate some fears for people.

 

– Christina H. Goodwin, Executive Director of Pine Forest Children’s Center

"Everyone Eats came at the perfect time. From a business perspective, the program bolstered the kitchen as we've adjusted to a new normal. But the best part is that it aligns with our values to support our community by sourcing from a local farm, and cooking delicious seasonal food for those in need. Everybody Eats is a great example of supporting the entire supply chain with CARES Act funding - from the farm to the commercial kitchen to the food insecure."

 

– Erin Malone, Momo’s Market

"The food is a great asset to many of our residents who live in affordable housing and are on a very limited budget. "

 

– Tracy Schneider & Janet Grant, SASH Coordinators
