Take Hunger Free Vermont's 6th Annual 3SquaresVT Challenge!
November 15th- 21st 2015

The 3SquaresVT Challenge seeks to highlight what it is like to eat on the average 3SquaresVT benefit—approximately $37 a week for a single person.


This November 15-21, as part of National Hunger and Homelessness Week (the week before Thanksgiving), Hunger Free Vermont invites you to build awareness about food insecurity by taking the 3SquaresVT Challenge. The purpose of the Challenge is not to emulate the reality of food insecurity for Vermonters—many of whom may rely on a variety of programs and resources to meet their families’ needs—but to instead draw attention to the experience of living on a strict food budget allotment and how that may or may not change your daily life both physically and psychologically as a participant.
