“Support Buddies”

We partnered with Heineberg Community Senior Center to create “Support Buddies”. Volunteers are matched with seniors who are isolated at home. These caring volunteers provide phone call check-ins, help with grocery lists, and assist where needed.

“HANDS in the Kitchen” Nutrition Education

Due to COVID, we shifted to online workshops which are now available on our website.

“HANDS in the Dirt”

HANDS in the Dirt moved online this summer, due to COVID, so you can watch a gardening video.

Holiday Dinner

Now in our 20th year, we help to provide a non-denominational meal delivery throughout Chittenden County on Christmas Day.

We’ll be offering delivered meals again on Christmas Day this year.

Good Food Truck

Unfortunately, Feeding Chittenden is unable to provide meal deliveries for us at this time. We’re hopeful that we can offer this program again sometime soon.

HANDS was fortunate enough to be contacted by NPR’s StoryCorps in the summer of 2016. Megan Humphrey interviewed Charlie Auer, of “Charlie’s Boathouse” fame, about food in the old days in Burlington. Please sit back, relax, and listen to Charlie’s delightful stories. We love and miss you, Charlie. We encourage you to donate to HANDS in Charlie’s memory.
