Re: “Salvation Farms' Programs Turn Surplus Into Plenty

I am glad to see Seven Days covering such an important topic. I would like to clarify a few points about Farm to Plate. Farm to Plate is not an organization; it is Vermont’s food system plan being implemented by over 350 organizations statewide to increase economic development & jobs in the farm & food sector and improve access to healthy local food for all Vermonters. The plan includes strategies on expanding gleaning practices, and the Farm to Plate Network considers gleaning and surplus management to be a very important way to increase Vermonter’s access to local produce. Salvation Farms is leading the state with this work, along with organizations such as the Vermont Foodbank. They are both active members of the Farm to Plate Network. The Network has been working to support a wide variety of food rescue efforts to help reach Vermont’s Act 148 goals, which mandates food rescue and other efforts to reduce food waste. There is still a long way to go. It will take the effort of all Vermonters to help ensure food is not wasted and no one goes hungry. Fortunately, our local food system can play a big role in getting us there. --Erica Campbell, VT Farm to Plate Network Director
