Food Deserts

Despite Vermont's reputation as the nation's premier state for local-food production, 32% of Vermonters either cannot afford enough food or enough nutritious food. This edition of Vermont Grown puts the focus on some citizens in the state's Northeast Kingdom who are working to bring fresh, affordable, locally-produced food to isolated rural towns.

 

Mobile Food Market


Meet the driving force behind an innovative, mobile food market that delivers healthy, locally-grown food to five communities across Vermont's Northeast Kingdom.
 

Quick & Easy Pasta


Le Belvedere Restaurant's Chef Jason Marcoux shows us how to combine a handful of fresh, Vermont-grown ingredients for a quick and easy pasta dish.
 

Fresh Start Community Garden


See how a partnership between senior citizens and youngsters has transformed a vacant lot in Newport, Vermont into a bountiful garden and a vibrant, multi-generational community.
