Hunger Councils

We believe in harnessing the wisdom and collective power of local Hunger Councils to address food insecurity in their communities. The ten Hunger Councils of Vermont+ are making an impact by both informing and amplifying Hunger Free Vermont's mission and strategies.

All Hunger Councils are committed to learning about hunger and improving community and household food security. The Hunger Councils coordinate efforts and build strong nutrition safety nets at the community level and statewide. The Hunger Council model is a comprehensive approach to addressing hunger: by educating community members about the local causes and effects of hunger and providing tools to improve nutrition and reduce hunger in their communities and beyond.

Membership in the Hunger Councils is open to anyone with an interest in furthering the Council’s vision that all Vermonters in each community in our state have access to an adequate supply of nutritious food.

A Discussion on Hunger in Vermont with the Candidates for Vermont's Governor

On May 17th, 2016, the Hunger Councils of Vermont hosted a Discussion on Hunger in Vermont with the Candidates for Vermont's Governor. The event brought together, for the first time, representatives from all 10 Hunger Councils to ask the gubernatorial candidates about their approaches to ending the injustice of hunger and malnutrition for all.
