Health & Well-Being

The Community Action Agencies were some of the first on the scene to address the ever growing food insecurity brought on by Covid-19. They were able to do this because of more than 50 years of experience of feeding the hungry and promoting nutrition and the well-being of Vermont individuals and families with low income. We are the front line.
