A Kitchen To Serve The Hungry
The Hedding UMC Community Kitchen
Since COVID-19 began in early 2020, the Hedding United Methodist Church building had been closed to public worship until recently and has been unable to serve food to the Barre community. Though difficult, the closing of our kitchen facilities has given us a chance to focus more on food insecurity issues in Central Vermont. As a result, we’ve concluded that a commercial kitchen will better serve the needs of the greater community; by expanding our own capacity to provide much needed meals, and by serving as a community resource for culinary training programs designed to improve economic stability in the area.
For every crisis there is an opportunity; and this crisis has prompted the church to launch a Fundraiser for The Hedding UMC Community Kitchen with a goal of raising $300,000 for the needed renovations.
Due to a matching donation of $25,000 we, as a community, now have the opportunity to raise a total of $50,000 in addition to the $156,111 already raised as of September 1, 2021.
Please help us reach our goal of becoming a commercial community kitchen with a cause.
All donations small or large are appreciated.
