Join us in the Fight Against Hunger in Vermont
July 1, 2020
In the best of times in Vermont, one in four people struggle to find adequate food for themselves and their families. Because of the pandemic, food insecurity in Vermont has increased by 46%, causing a greater need and making the issue of hunger more pervasive for Vermonters.
In partnership with the Point to Point, powered by VSECU, we’re going to do something about that, and we hope you’ll join us!
Ways to Help
Enjoy Harpoon IPA
For every case of Harpoon IPA sold in Vermont during the month of July, we will donate a portion of proceeds directly to the Vermont Foodbank, the state’s largest hunger relief organization, through the Point to Point, powered by VSECU. Our friends and partners at Farrell Distributing are kindly matching our donation to double the impact. Click here to find Harpoon IPA near you.
Bottle Banks – Donate Your Change
Our partners at Farrell Distributing are making bottle banks available throughout the state, so you can donate all month long – keep an eye out for a bottle bank at participating retailers.
Register to Ride or Run the Point to Point, which takes place on August 1st
The Point to Point, powered by VSECU, is a riding and running event that raises funds to support the Vermont Foodbank’s mission to eliminate hunger in Vermont. This year’s event will be virtual to protect the health of participants. Register here for the Virtual 2020 Point to Point, powered by VSECU. The virtual event will be held on August 1, 2020 but riders and runners can complete their personalized event between July 17 and August 2
Registration is free and virtual participants will ride or run on a course of their own choosing, share their experience online, and raise much-needed funds to support Vermonters. The Point to Point organizers provide all the tools you need to raise the minimum $150 donation, as well as some helpful fundraising tips to help you meet your fundraising goals.
