In the United States, 1 in 9 People Struggle With Hunger

Children and adults face hunger throughout the Upper Valley. Many times people have no idea that their neighbor, child’s classmate or even coworker may be struggling to get enough to eat. A former Haven shelter guest and father of two sons put it best, “I don’t have to panic anymore. I know I can use the Food Shelf and work with other local agencies to get us through.”

Items in the Haven’s Food Shelf are purchased through the Vermont Foodbank as well as received through generous donations from individuals, businesses, churches, and civic groups. We are extremely grateful for our food partners and donors. Visit our Food Shelf Wish List for a list of food items we currently need. Food drives are always needed and welcome!
