In Addison County, community volunteers have started a neighbor-to-neighbor service, Addison County Mutual Aid, to connect people who can help to people who need help. Visit the website to sign up to help or let them know you need assistance.
Food assistance continues through HOPE and CVOEO food shelves on an outside pick-up basis only. Both organizations are also still accepting donations. Individual school districts have meal and food pick-up and/or delivery services for families - see below for their websites. Hunger Free Vermont also has a good website outlining the status of food assistance programs in the face of the Coronavirus.
