Food Pantry Receives $5,000 Grant

HARDWICK – The Hardwick Area Food Pantry (HAFP) has received a grant from the Vermont Community Foundation to help with the expansion of the program to Craftsbury and Albany. The $5,000 grant will help further food pantry’s mission of providing food to those that are impacted by food insecurity.

“HAFP is extremely grateful for the generosity of the Vermont Community Foundation’s Northeast Kingdom Fund. This grant will provide the necessary resources to allow HAFP the opportunity to expand our outreach in the Craftsbury and Albany areas and serve more families in need.”

To build long term sustainability for food access work that meets the needs in the food pantry service area, HAFP and the Craftsbury-Albany Food for Neighbors have teamed up to incorporate the Craftsbury and Albany sites into HAFP operations as a multi-site program.
