Vermont Everyone Eats
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Vermont Everyone Eats (VEE) played a pivotal role in providing nutritious meals to Vermonters in need, while also serving as a vital source of income for local restaurants, farmers, and food producers. This initiative, funded by FEMA and the Vermont Legislature, was administered by SEVCA.

Responding to Community Needs
Building upon the success of VEE, Vermont Emergency Eats is a short-term emergency program born from a collaborative effort between the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) and Southeastern Vermont Community Action (SEVCA).
Since August 2023, Vermont Emergency Eats has been actively engaging local restaurants to provide prepared meals in response to the summer flooding that impacted numerous communities. Meals are available to Vermonters whose access to food remains compromised in the aftermath of this disaster.
Vermont Emergency Eats is administered by SEVCA, in partnership with a statewide network of hubs, including Capstone Community Action, Center for an Agricultural Economy, Chester Helping Hands, Green Mountain Farm To School, The Giving Fridge, Springfield Family Center, and Vermont Farmers Food Center.
Vermont Emergency Eats is here to help in multiple counties: Addison, Caledonia, Chittenden, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans, Rutland, Washington, Windham and Windsor.
