The state authorized an extension to Nov 4th for the Vermont Emergency Eats (VEE) program, which is distributing meals to flood-impacted Vermonters in areas of the state where the need continues. GMFTS and Olney’s General Store in Orleans are working in partnership to provide free meals through VEE. So far we have distributed 4,296 meals to the Ethan Allen workers and other flood impacted community members.
Has your food security been negatively impacted as a result of the July 2023 flooding event? If so, you qualify for free meals through Vermont Emergency Eats. You can head to vtemergencyeats.org to find a distribution location near you.
