Elect a Client Representative to SEVCA’s Board of Directors. Voting to take place September 14th - 25th

Please take a moment to vote for a client representative for the Brattleboro area on the Board of Directors of Southeastern Vermont Community Action (SEVCA), the anti-poverty agency serving residents of Windham & Windsor Counties.

  • Client representatives can speak with firsthand knowledge about what people need to survive and become self-reliant.
  • Help effectively direct SEVCA’s resources and services.


  • Fill out a ballot. It includes a brief explanation of the SEVCA Board structure, the need for client representatives, and a brief biography on the candidate who is running for election.

  • Although ballots will be available from September 14-25th, please do not vote more than once.


Everyone Eats is feeding Vermonters and is coming to a community near you!

SEVCA, along with statewide partners, including the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, VT Food Bank, and other organizations who make up the statewide taskforce, are  delighted to share our most recent press on the new Vermont Program, Everyone Eats. This program is the first of its kind in the nation to utilize federal CARES Act funding to purchase meals from restaurants and to provide them to those state residents who have been impacted by COVID 19. This program is a win- win-win! Restaurants receive payment for meals. Vermont farmers provide at least 10% of the local ingredients included in meals. Vermont residents get the food they need! 

Check out coverage on 8/27/2020 of this program and the first roll out in Brattleboro,
