Raspberries. Brie. Spinach. Ground turkey. Orange juice.

That eclectic mix is just a sample of Jon Brandom’s early morning grocery haul on a recent Wednesday. He was picking up for Feeding Chittenden, a hunger relief organization based in Burlington that provides meals, a market, cooking classes and more to Chittenden County residents experiencing food insecurity.

UVM researchers estimate that 40% of Vermonters experienced food insecurity in 2022. Meanwhile, Feeding Chittenden helps feed more than 12,000 people a year.“I feel like this is an answer,” Brandom said, as he criss-crossed the Burlington area in a boxy white van.
