Our Team
Williston Community Food Shelf
Williston Community Food Shelf

The Williston Community Food Shelf is a 501(C3), tax exempt, 100% top-to-bottom volunteer-run organization dedicated to the elimination of hunger in the towns of Williston and St George. Since our inception in 2008, our mission is to provide high quality food and important connections to essential support services to those in need in our community.

Our clients include elderly folks on fixed incomes, neighbors with disabilities, and working families whose paychecks don’t cover necessities, though we serve anyone in need, without question or financial information. 16% of Williston’s 10,000 residents have incomes low enough to qualify them for participation in the federal nutrition assistance programs such as 3SquaresVT.

From January-July, 2018, we have served 1675 families, representing 4,970 individuals. Of these, 665 are senior citizens and 1730 are children. In 2008/2009, we served a total of 3500 families. In our 10 years, we have served 73,000 people!
