|Hike for Hunger|
Thanks to everyone who supported the 2013 Hike for Hunger on September 28th! We are truly grateful to the over 500 people who hiked, volunteered, donated or provided business underwriting. All of these efforts help raised awareness and funds to eliminate hunger in our community.
Over $24,000 was raised! This funding immediately powers all of our education and advocacy work to eliminate hunger in our state. Hunger Free Vermont works to ensure that there is nutritious food for children wherever they are throughout their days, empower adults and seniors with 3SquaresVT benefits to provide healthful food in the home, and provide nutrition education to families so they can cook nutritious meals on small budgets. In addition to contributing to a higher quality of life, healthier eating can save thousands of dollars over a lifetime in personal health care costs and lost wages due to illness. On behalf of all the staff at Hunger Free Vermont, thank you to everyone who lent a hand to make the Hike for Hunger a success.
