Vermont Food Education Every Day

Vermont Food Education Every Day (VT FEED) is a community-based approach to school food system change in a rural state through the collaboration of two Vermont non-profits, NOFA Vermont and Shelburne Farms.

VT FEED works with schools and communities to raise awareness about healthy food, the role of Vermont farms and farmers, and good nutrition. We act as a catalyst for rebuilding healthy local food systems, and to cultivate links between the classrooms, cafeterias, local farms, and communities. NOFA-VT’s role in this partnership focuses on school food by connecting kitchen managers with local farmers, helping farmers make the connection with schools, training school food service personnel about how to use fresh and local foods, and teaching school staff how to introduce new foods to students.
