Did You Know that 1 in 5 Vermont Children Live In Families Struggling with Hunger?

One in five Vermont children lives in families struggling with hunger.

And yet many families are unaware that receiving the Vermont Earned Income Tax Credit provides access to food and nutrition benefits as well—including free school meals for their children!

Families who receive the VT Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and have dependent children are likely financially eligible for 3Squares VT without having to meet the income test typically required to establish eligibility—and once receiving 3SquaresVT, their children are eligible for free meals at school.

Hunger Free Vermont has developed an informational flyer about this subject; to view it, please click here.
