FEED’s mission is to work towards food security, a Catholic Social Teaching, through partnering with local organizations that pursue food sustainability. With our various partners, we participate in service that ranges from gleaning* to volunteering at food shelves and cooking meals for local shelters and community organizations.
Through fasts, reflections, forums, and participation in National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, we aim to educate our campus on the local impacts of food sovereignty*,
food deserts*, and food security.
Some of our community partners include: Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, Williston Community Food Shelf, and ANEW Place.
* Gleaning: Rescuing food by gathering leftover crops from fields that have already been harvested.
* Food Sovereignty: the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate, sustainable food.
*Food Deserts: areas in which healthy and good quality foods areunaffordable and inaccessible to many people
