Project Feed the Thousands was started in 1994 by Larry Smith, formerly of WTSA radio, and Entergy Vermont Yankee (Ret.) and George Haynes, formerly of the Brattleboro Savings & Loan (Ret.). Their initial goal was to fill a single tractor trailer with food for people in Brattleboro area. Over the years, the need has grown. Project Feed has also grown in size and scope. Today, Project Feed the Thousands collects multiple tractor trailers’ worth of food and personal care items for thousands of people in and around six communities across southeastern Vermont and southwestern, NH. We also aim to raise more than $100,000.00 in cash — which will help buy even more food for neighbors who would otherwise go hungry.
From now until December 31, you can donate items at your local drop-in center or family center, or at hundreds of other Project Feed drop-off locations located at stores, schools and businesses in our communities.
In December of 2015, Brattleboro Ford Subaru chose us as their hometown charity for their Share the Love Twice Campaign. Subaru of America donated $250 for every new Subaru leased or purchased to Project Feed when the customer chose us as the charity of their choice. On top of that, Brattleboro Subaru donated an extra $100! Brattleboro Ford was also in the spirit of giving by donating $100 for the lease or purchase of every new Ford. Together, they were able to raise almost $28,000 to assist in Project Feed’s mission. Thank you Brattleboro Ford Subaru not only for your support of us, but for the other immense charitable work you do for the rest of Southern Vermont and New Hampshire!
Our goal once again this year is to raise $100,000 and to serve 200,000 meals. Please donate to help make our initiative!
