A new study reveals that in Vermont, 20.7% of children under the age of 18 are struggling with hunger. We strive to provide food for our neighbors in need and help ensure that nobody goes without.
The US Census reports that in 2010, 67,000 Vermonters, or 10.8 percent, lived in poverty last year. That’s up from 58,000 people or 9.4 percent of Vermonters just one year earlier, according to Census data. This week, the Census Bureau reported roughly one in six Americans -- more than ever before -- lived in poverty last year.
