With thousands losing jobs across Vermont, and state food shelves inundated with people to feed, ShiftMeals provides nourishing meals for those in need. We serve anyone and everyone who needs a meal: laid-off restaurant workers, musicians, artists, gig workers, farmers, anyone affected by this crisis. You might not have the cash, you might not have access to the store, it doesn’t matter, if you need help, we’re here for you.

We also share meals through food shelves and community meal sites.

We’re grateful to be weathering this storm with an amazing community, strengthened by our close relationships with local farmers, food producers, cooks, servers, and community members.
