Help Your Neighbors Who Lost Food from the Autumn Storm

The wind storm and power outages have put many community members already struggling to put food on the table in an extremely difficult situation. As a result, many Vermonters are choosing between replacing the contents of their refrigerator or putting gas in their car or fuel in their home. Or even worse, these families are going without. 

OPERATION RESTOCK is a partnership effort of Capstone Community Action, the Vermont Foodbank, and Mayor Thom and Karen Lauzon to provide emergency food assistance. We ask the community to help their neighbors in need by making a donation at fuelyourneighbors.org, or sending a gift to Capstone Community Action, attn.: Operation Restock, 20 Gable Place, Barre, VT 05641.
