Hunger Free Vermont Flood Response Needs Survey

Hunger Free Vermont is working with the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) to gather information from childcare providers in order to secure state and federal funds to meet immediate needs of those impacted by the flood, and also to create a plan to meet the longer-term food needs of people and communities during recovery.

Childcare providers can provide valuable information for their communities around the state, and from what they are hearing from the families they serve. The information collected will be shared with the SEOC to help determine next steps in the recovery and allocate additional funding. 

Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey.
