As the Nutrition Initiatives Director, Anore Horton leads Hunger Free Vermont’s efforts to enhance food security for Vermont’s youngest to oldest citizens through statewide food security initiatives that improve, promote, and expand Vermont’s participation in federal nutrition programs, along with other programs that promote economic security.
Anore spearheads Hunger Free Vermont’s ongoing campaign for universal school meals, our project to support schools in moving breakfast “after the bell” to ensure that all students have true access to this most important meal of the day, and our partnerships with Vermont’s statewide and regional farm to school organizations to improve the quality of school meals and the physical and economic health of our communities.
Before joining Hunger Free Vermont in 2011, Anore worked in higher education for over fifteen years as a professor of the history of social movements and public policy in the U.S. and Latin America, and as a consultant to faculty and academic programs on course and curriculum design and assessment. She has also directed volunteer literacy and ESL programs for children and immigrants in California and New York.
Anore received her Masters in Teaching from the University of San Diego and her Masters in History from Princeton University. She is also a certified adult educator with the Vermont Northern Lights registry. As an educator, Anore has experienced first-hand the direct relationship between nutrition and learning for children, teens, and adults. She is passionate about being part of the community working to end the injustice of hunger and malnutrition for all Vermonters, and ensuring that all people have the opportunity to develop their full potential.
