Please Vote for the VT Foodbank to Win a $60K Award

The Vermont Foodbank needs your help! Please join this VOTING Campaign!  The Vermont Foodbank is in the running for $60,000 from Walmart to support our culinary training program -- Community Kitchen Academy, which is operated in partnership with Capstone Community Action in Barre and Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf in Burlington.  Visit

Community Kitchen Academy (CKA) prepares underemployed and unemployed Vermonters for a career in the food service industry and lifelong learning through an intensive program of culinary skills development, career readiness and job placement. Students actively develop and apply new skills by creating wholesome meals for those at risk of hunger using food that has been gathered from within our communities that may otherwise go to waste. CKA has an 87% success rate—meaning that 87% of graduated students have found employment or have gone on to further education after CKA.
