About the Project

Project Feed the Thousands was started in 1994 by Larry Smith, formerly of WTSA radio, and Entergy Vermont Yankee (Ret.) and George Haynes, formerly of the Brattleboro Savings & Loan (Ret.). Their initial goal was to fill a single tractor trailer with food for people in Brattleboro area.

Over the years, the need has grown. Project Feed has also grown in size and scope. Today, Project Feed the Thousands collects more than 25 tractor trailers’ worth (that's about 62,500 bags!) of food and personal care items for thousands of people in and around six communities across southeastern Vermont and southwestern, NH. We also aim to raise more than $100,000.00 in cash -- which will help buy even more food for neighbors who would otherwise go hungry.

It's easy to make a difference. Donate now.
