CVSD Awarded Grant to Help Feed Families

Nourishing Neighbors Shaw’s Foundation Donate $9600 to 
Help Feed Children and Families During The Summer

During this exceptionally challenging time, we were fortunate to receive a generous gift that will help us meet the increased demand for food assistance.

We’re excited to receive a $9600 grant from Shaw’s Nourishing Neighbors Foundation!

The grant is meant to help feed kids and families during summer. As we are all aware, hunger relief programs like ours are stretched beyond capacity due to the surge in unemployment and other economic and social fallout from the pandemic. In response to what quickly became a critical need, Albertsons Companies, which includes Shaw’s supermarkets, pledged $15 Million to Help Feed Children and Families During Summer, part of the Shaw’s Foundations’ Nourishing Neighbors Initiative.

Here in the Champlain Valley School District, this grant will help pay for equipment and volunteers to deliver food to 50 families who can not get to our distribution sites. We are ready to deliver free meals to anyone with children 18 years old or younger.

“This help from Shaw’s and their generous customers will greatly expand our ability to help our neighbors who most need our help,” said Jeanne Jensen, CVSD COO. “The people we’re serving are beyond grateful for this support, and so are we.” 

We are grateful to be a part of Nourishing Neighbors Family. The support, partnership, and generosity are truly making a difference.
