Vermont Everyone Eats provides nutritious meals to Vermonters in need of food assistance as well as a stabilizing source of income for Vermont restaurants, farmers, and food producers.

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.

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

This program means so much to my community. Being able to eat healthy and support my favorite local restaurants is a win-win!

 

– Jennifer, Chittenden County

"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
