A bright green food truck roving the Burlington, Vermont area is turning heads and doing a lot more than serving up lunch. “The Good Food Truck,” as it is known, is a project of the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, which offers services including a pantry for neighbors in need, and a hot meal service for homeless clients.
The food truck travels around the Burlington area selling meals and using the proceeds to benefit the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf. But that is just part of the truck’s mission. It also goes into neighborhoods that have high percentages of food-insecure people and serves free community meals.
