Food Connects

About Us

Food Connects delivers locally produced food as well as educational and ​consulting services aimed at transforming local food systems.

Since our founding in 2013, Food Connects has been working with local school chefs to provide training, better equipment and affordable, convenient access to fresh local food.

In a county in which 1 in 4 children faces food insecurity, your dollar helps ensure that each child has access to healthy food at school, and that our schools contribute to the local food economy.

Our Farm to School program supports 30 schools, 600 educators, school boards, and food service companies with curriculum, education, and menu support.

Our Food Hub aggregates and delivers from over 30 local farms and food producers to over 75 buyers in Southeast Vermont and Southwest New Hampshire.

Together these core programs contribute to a vibrant local economy by increasing local food sales by schools and improving students’ nutrition and academic performance.
