SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - 3SquaresVT is holding an outreach and policy conference on Thursday.

A press release says  the conference will allow advocates to learn more about how the 3SquaresVT program works, hear from policy experts from the Department for Children and Families, and brainstorm new outreach ideas.

“3SquaresVT is one of the best ways to prevent food insecurity for families, and we must do everything we can to help eligible Vermonters access these benefits,” says Marissa Parisi, Executive Director of Hunger Free Vermont.  “By bringing so many advocates together to talk about 3SquaresVT collectively, this conference is helping us achieve that goal.” 

More than 80 advocates from more than 40 organizations across Vermont are expected to attend the conference.

3SquaresVT provides benefits to over 92,000 Vermonters to buy more nutritious food at grocery stores and farmers’ markets.
