The largest direct emergency food provider in Vermont, announced a transformation Monday.
The Burlington-based Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf will now be called Feeding Chittenden.
After a series of listening sessions, feedback showed the former CEFS did not accurately represent everything it has to offer.
“We’ve heard for years from our supporters and partners that we’re ‘more than just a food shelf,’ and that our name didn’t reflect all of the work that we do,” Development Director Kelly Saunders said.
“Over the last 45 years, we’ve grown from a small food pantry into an anti-hunger organization that operates a diverse array of programs serving more than 10,000 of our neighbors each year,” she said.
Feeding Chittenden offers prepared meals, meal deliveries, groceries, social work services, and culinary job training opportunities.
The new logo was created by Four Nine Design. Executive Director Rob Meehan said it reflects the diversity of Feeding Chittenden and characterizes the brand as community and service-oriented.
