Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month, and there’s still a few days to act to help hungry Vermonters. It’s going to be a beautiful weekend: why not pick some apples for the Vermont Foodbank?

At participating orchards during September and October, you can pick and purchase apples for donation to the Foodbank. In central Vermont, Burtt’s Apple Orchard in Cabot (917-2614) and Liberty Orchard in Brookfield (276-3161) are participating. Call the orchards for picking times. Whether you pick a bag, a bucket, or a bushel, for a hungry Vermonter, your effort will make a difference.

The Foodbank Kitchen also creates tasty and nutritious meals from excess produce gleaned from generous Vermont farms. Read about it in my recent article in the Times-Argus.
