RECYCLING & FOOD DONATIONS

Vermont Food Bank Fresh Rescue Program

"Every day, the Vermont Foodbank and our Network Partner food shelves, meal sites, and senior centers work with local retailers to get food to Vermonters facing hunger. The Fresh Rescue Program creates a relationship that allows retailers to donate fresh, perishable food that they are ready to move off the shelves, that is still edible and fit for consumption, to Network Partners who can then distribute healthier food at their organization. The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Law helps make donations like this possible and network partners are equipped with proper storage and food safety training to transport, store, and distribute food properly. If you’d like to participate in the Fresh Rescue Program, please contact Kelsey Morley, kmorley@vtfoodbank.org, Retail Store Program Manager, at the Vermont Foodbank to learn more."
