Support Your Local Food Shelf

The UVM Libraries faculty, staff and student employees maintain a longstanding tradition of charitable giving during the holidays. This year our collective efforts will be on behalf of the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf which is located in Burlington, VT. They are run by the Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity.

If you want to help us support CEFS, you can make a secure online donation or bring non-perishable food items to Bailey/Howe Library or Dana Medical Library.

The CEFS works to alleviate hunger by feeding people and cultivating opportunities. As the largest direct service emergency food provider in Vermont, CEFS serves over 12,000 people each year. By supporting the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, you are making an investment in your community.

Food Shelves all across the country are currently struggling through a period of declining donations and government funding. Let’s show our local food shelf what the Libraries’ extended family of colleagues and friends are capable of when we work together.
