Burlington, Vermont 05401

Vermont has a proud culture of sustainable living, good food, clean water, connection with land, yet Vermont's food sector workers are overlooked in relation to sustainability, with low paying jobs, lack of healthcare, and unreliable working hours. We can not have a healthy, sustainable food system without healthy workers in sustainable jobs.
