Abstract

Although intended for acute food insecurity, the usage of emergency food shelves have become chronic due to insufficient wages, and the insufficiency of federal programs. This chronic use of emergency food is not helping to solve the systematic issue of hunger, but instead is providing alternative benefits. The purpose of this study is to examine how emergency food shelves have shifted from their traditional role of solely providing food to the food insecure to now promoting community food security in more meaningful ways through the employment of unique community health programs. This research will specifically highlight the Community Kitchen Academy program at Feeding Chittenden, in Burlington, Vermont.
