Two things I really love - Vermont and riding my bike. Something that I don't love - far too many people do not have access to healthy food. In a typical year, more than 150,000 (150,000!) Vermonters don’t know where their next meal is coming from. And if you've seen the news recently, we know that this year will be much worse given the massive destruction caused by the recent floods. For example, in Ludlow (the nearest "big town" to me), the supermarket was buried in mud - every item was destroyed and they must rebuild the interior. It will take far too many months for many of the small local businesses to recover, if they even can. I have to help and am asking if you can, too.
On Saturday, September 23, I am supporting the Point to Point fundraiser to bring funds to the Vermont Foodbank and help end hunger in Vermont. I have committed to riding 110 miles - and as they say, "Vermont isn't flat!" Can you please help me turn my effort into nutritious meals for some very deserving folks? With your help, the fundraiser can raise $150,000 this year and provide over 250,000 meals to Vermonters in need. Every dollar counts—just $10 provides over 15 meals. Vermont Strong!

The Point to Point
The Point to Point, powered by VSECU, is an annual event that raises money for the Vermont Foodbank. Help us end hunger in Vermont by registering or donating today! Join us at the State House Lawn in Montpelier on Saturday, September 23. There will be music, local food trucks, games, and fun for the entire family. Together, we can provide over 172,500 meals for our neighbors in need.
Each year, as many as 153,000 Vermonters are in need of emergency food assistance. As part of our mission to improve Vermonters’ quality of life, VSECU has been involved in the annual Point to Point fundraiser for the Vermont Foodbank for many years, before adopting the event in 2018. All told, the Point to Point has raised over $2 million in the effort to ensure that no one in Vermont goes hungry.
