In 2009, Northfield Savings Bank continued their funding for another three years to help Hunger Free Vermont expand the Hunger Council model to other areas of the state. With additional support from the Canaday Family Trust and Green Mountain fund, in 2010 the Hunger Council of the Lamoille Valley was launched—the first after the Chittenden and Washington pilot councils.

The Council is currently chaired by:

  • Scott Johnson, Director of Lamoille Family Center
  • Susan Bartlett, Special Projects Coordinator for the Vermont Agency of Human Services Central Office

The Hunger Council of the Lamoille Valley meets next on September 22nd. (Press Release Here) The Council will be focusing on the supports and services available to seniors, a population seeing increasing rates of food insecurity in the state. The Council will also be reviewing plans and priorities for the coming year, using feedback from the Summer Member Survey. The draft meeting agenda is available HERE and the Executive Summary of the Member Survey is available HERE.

The Hunger Council last met on Thursday, June 16th to discuss summer food resources in the region, as well as share feedback and plan for the next year of meetings and the new statewide Hunger Council network. (Press Release Here) The meeting agenda is available HERE and meeting minutes are available HERE.

As a result of the discussion on summer food resources, a document was created listing various resources across the Lamoille Valley. (Click Here)
