Hunger Council of the Windham Region
The Hunger Council of the Windham Region is a group of local leaders who are committed to learning about hunger and improving community and household food security. Hunger Free VT's Hunger Councils, now established in every region of the state, coordinate efforts and build strong nutrition safety nets at the community and state level. This project is a comprehensive approach to addressing hunger: by educating community members about the local causes and effects of hunger and providing tools to improve nutrition and reduce hunger in their communities and beyond.
Membership in the Hunger Councils is open to anyone with an interest in furthering the Council’s vision that all Vermonters in each community in our state have access to an adequate supply of nutritious food. Please join us!
