We're a network of Vermont Chefs, Farmers, Food Artisans, and Diners.

Donate to VFN

Individual donors join the Vermont Fresh Network through a Supporting Membership. Supporting Membership applies to individuals or organizations that are not farmers or chefs, but would like to support and celebrate the partnerships forged between the two. 

Benefits of Supporting Membership:

  • Member Pricing for Vermont Fresh Network events
  • A subscription to our bi-weekly e-newsletter The Fresh Feed, keeping you up-to-date on the latest events and local food news 
  • A nifty, VFN window sticker.
  • Your donation supports the unique farmer and chef partnerships that make dining out in Vermont so special!

The Vermont Fresh Network is dedicated to a flourishing local food system for the benefit of our environment, our communities, our health and the overall strength of the rural economy. We approach this work through connections between farmers and chefs. Chefs, and other culinary professionals, play a key role in shaping our daily food lives and present unique market opportunities for Vermont food producers. We are the primary statewide organization representing this perspective in local food work.

Your support of the Vermont Fresh Network matters tremendously. 

VFN is a membership-based organization. Our partner members pay dues that help cover the costs of direct member benefits. However, we undertake a range of projects throughout the year, whether it’s going in-depth on key issues like fish from Lake Champlain or offering educational events for an audience beyond our membership or building collaborative programs like the DigInVT partnership. We rely on grants and donations to pay for these initiatives, and we thank you for helping us achieve our mission through your Supporting Member donation.  

Begin or renew your membership today and help us continue to grow an honest, transparent and delicious food system
