Vermont Everyone Eats Relaunches through Continued Partnerships
1975 marks the end of the Vietnam War with the fall of Saigon; the conviction of Mitchell, Haldeman and Ehrlichman, ending the Watergate Scandal; and the bombing of the State Department by the Weather Underground. 1975 also marks the beginning of Microsoft Corporation, Saturday Night Live, and the Brattleboro Food Co-op.
The Brattleboro Food Co-op is excited to announce the launch of its Round Up program. Shoppers can now choose to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar and have the difference go to a local non-profit. Each month we will select a different non-profit to be featured as the recipient of our shoppers’ generosity. The first organization that we will feature is Groundworks Collaborative in November and December. Groundworks Collaborative provides ongoing support to families and individuals facing a full continuum of housing and food insecurities in the greater Brattleboro area.

[BRATTLEBORO, VT, July 2020—] Our community will be eating 2,400 restaurant meals each week in August, for free. Everyone Eats! is a new program using federal funds to purchase meals from independently-owned restaurants in Brattleboro, all of which are struggling because of the coronavirus physical distancing rules. The restaurants, who are experts in the field of feeding people, will be assured revenue and a role in our community. All people who need to eat will be fed. This is how Brattleboro does it!
