Healthy Living Market and Café Celebrates Over $49,000 Donated to Fight Hunger

SARATOGA SPRINGS/ WILLISTON/ S. BURLINGTON, VT — Healthy Living Market and Café today announces that a combined $49,167 has been donated to food banks in each of its three communities as a result of its round-up campaign, Together We Can Help.

Four organizations received a donation for the 2020 fundraising campaign. In Saratoga, the Wilton Food Pantry and the Franklin Community Center Food Shelf have each received $3,186. In Vermont, $24,701 will be provided to Feeding Chittenden and $18,904 to the South Burlington Food Shelves. 

“Making such impactful donations is a team effort,” says Eli Lesser-Goldsmith, CEO of Healthy Living. “We are thankful to our incredible guests who share our desire to build stronger communities by helping our friends and neighbors. Food insecurity is a severe, increasing issue nationwide. With so many people facing hunger in the communities we serve since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, we hope these donations will make a difference.”

Guests can share in the mission to support the work of community-oriented nonprofits by choosing to round up at the register. This year, Together We Can Help donations will go to the Wilton Food Pantry, Franklin Community Center Food Shelf, the South Burlington Food Shelf and Feeding Chittenden.
