During the event, volunteers also donated over 500 pounds of food for the Vermont Food Bank to provide much needed aid and nourishment to our neighbors.
Chicken, Veggies, Soy, & Rice!
Volunteers measured these ingredients in to bags that held six meals each.
Seal the meal!
After weighing and squeezing out excess air, the bags are sealed.
