Mindful Food Drive
to benefit the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf

Mindful Food Drive Results

Together, we did it!

With our 2016 Mindful Food Drive, we set out to purposefully fill the gaps and critical needs for the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, while also providing some fun foods that aren’t always available to visitors of the food shelf. Our goal was to donate 100 lbs. of food, or approximately 85 meals. Thanks to the support of our wonderful clients, friends and colleagues, we flew past our goal and donated 692 lbs. of food.

Thank you for helping us Think Big, Never Settle, and Make a Difference.
