Shift Meals, "a local food response to COVID-19", is an initiative led by The Skinny Pancake to provide nourishing meals to "anyone and everyone who needs it", with a special focus on laid-off restaurant workers, musicians, artists, gig workers, farmers, etc. Meals are available for pickup in Burlington, Montpelier, and Waterbury, with plans for additional expansion. To learn more, visit the Shift Meals website. Also, check out this segment from ABC Local 22.

The Vermont Community Foundation is proud to have worked with The Skinny Pancake, Intervale Center, and High Meadows Fund to get this project off the ground.
