We supply our pantry through donations of food and cash. We use our funds to purchase food through the Vermont Foodbank and at various retail outlets where we can get the best price. We purchase milk and eggs from Mansfield Dairy. Thanks to Act 148, the Universal Recycling Law, we receive bakery, deli, meat, produce and dairy products from Hannaford on a daily basis.This partnership offers a variety of foods to our clients while keeping excess out of the landfill. Many of our neighbors grow extra veggies just for us.
The Lamoille Neighborhood Food Project started in Fall 2013. This is a donor driven program which collects food on our behalf throughout the year.
Kevin Carter is our Program Manager, Susan Rousselle is our Program Coordinator and Becca Reggio is our Manager's Assistant.
Where We Are
Our pantry is located at 197 Harrel Street in Morrisville, Vermont. We are in the same building as The Community College of Vermont.
We are supported by our community. We reach out with newsletters, direct appeals, facebook and newspaper articles. We receive donations from our six core towns (Eden, Elmore, Hyde Park, Morristown, Stowe and Wolcott). We participate in special events throughout the year. We also apply for grants that might be right for us.
"Creating Sustainable Communities" is a class at People's Academy looking at the social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability in our community. One of the students, Aidan Lodge, was studying the relationship between food insecurity and food waste. He created the video above about Lamoille Community Food Share.
