Mission Statement

The Farm at VYCC empowers youth, adults and families to connect with farm-fresh food and experience improved health and quality of life.We unite the community around health, nutrition and food access for all.

Description

The Farm at VYCC is a program of the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps. We use the VYCC model of small youth crews assigned to a high priority project that works to imporve our community. The Farms high priority project is feeding people through The Health Care Share (HCS). The HCS is the primary hunger relief strategy of the Farm at VYCC. HCS provides food-insecure Vermonters with nutritional education, medical care, and local farm-fresh food. Each week of the growing season, 300 families (1,000 individuals) receive a share of fruit, vegetables, herbs, and pasture-raised poultry from the Farm at VYCC.
