BURLINGTON — The Intervale Center and Vermont Foodbank are partnering to construct a cold storage building onsite at Intervale Center to store produce for donation. The produce stored will come primarily from the gleaning of Intervale’s tenant farms, as well as from People’s Farm, which was started by Intervale Center last year in response to growing food insecurity in the community.

The Intervale Center’s free CSA program, Fair Share, distributes gleaned food from Intervale farms and farms in Chittenden County every week from July through October to 200 households and 12 social service agencies. This new cold storage facility will support Vermont Foodbank and Intervale Center’s gleaning programs and allow Vermont Foodbank to support distribution beyond Chittenden County.
