The BIPOC GrowTeam at Conscious Homestead
ShiftMeals GrowTeams provides an ongoing safety net for those in need, organizing group gardens that provide reliable produce for the people, agricultural education and community connectivity. After volunteers earn their own CSA, any excess produce is shared with friends, families, and neighbors.
Who is ShiftMeals?
With thousands losing jobs across Vermont, and state food shelves inundated with people to feed, ShiftMeals provides nourishing meals and gardens for those in need.
We create a safety net for the food insecure by providing meals and gardens to our communities and effectively advocating for legislation to scale this model. Restaurants nourish us and our communities. ShiftMeals is proof that restaurants can and should be part of the charitable food system. By catalyzing scalable statewide and national programs, we will extend our impact to other restaurants and communities, providing hundreds of thousands of meals to those in need.
ShiftMeals leads with kindness and collaboration. Supported by years of community building, this project was created by a partnership of The Skinny Pancake, Intervale Center, Vermont Community Foundation, and High Meadows Fund. We are honored to be in partnership with a rich ecosystem of partners and allies.
