Contact Anore

Anore leads Hunger Free Vermont, a statewide advocacy, education, and technical assistance nonprofit dedicated to ending the injustice of hunger and malnutrition for all Vermonters. Before leading Hunger Free Vermont, Anore spent 7 years managing the organization's nutrition initiatives. During her tenure, she has been instrumental in fighting to eliminate the root causes of hunger through statewide initiatives that expand Vermont’s participation in federal nutrition programs including 3SquaresVT, Meals on Wheels, school breakfast and lunch, summer and afterschool meals, and childcare meals, along with state-level projects that enact dignified solutions to hunger. Anore has spearheaded the organization's campaign for universal school meals, the 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 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.
