Training Women
Feeding Children
Sourcing Locally

FRESH Food is an Enterprise of Vermont Works for Women. Our training program prepares women to work in restaurants and professional kitchens. While they're here, they help our lead chefs prepare healthy, nutritious meals for local childcare centers. We support Vermont farms by purchasing milk, eggs, beef, cheese, vegetables, fruit, and honey.
