Food insecurity is a significant problem in Vermont affecting over 10% of the population in 2016. Access to nutrition is an important social determinant of health with long term implications for our communities. In order to increase awareness of existing infrastructure to reduce food insecurity in Rutland County, a resource guide was created with information about local food pantries, community dinners, and assistance obtaining 3SquaresVT benefits.
