Putney Foodshelf Info

Putney Foodshelf is open tonight from 6-7 pm! Please read below for the changes we’ve implemented following guidance from the Vermont Foodbank, and please share this information widely!


Starting tonight, we’re shifting to a drive up model. Please stay in your car and wait for a volunteer to direct you. Each customer has the option to receive the following:

– A prepacked bag with shelf stable foods and some produce (subject to change)
– One roll of toilet paper
– A package of meat
-A quart of milk, cheese, and half a dozen eggs.

We are committed to continuing our open hours during this time. If you can’t make it to open hours, please call 211 for assistance. Leave a message. Someone will call you back!

Do you have any questions about tonight’s open hours? Please email Hannah at We’re so grateful for the support of our community and that we’re able to support you, too.


Wondering how you can help? Do you need help? With the blessing of our selectboard and town personnel, volunteers Ruby McAdoo and Jaime Contois have created a form we can use for offering/requesting mutual aid. Please consider filling out the form and share concerns you have about your own needs and/or ways you would like to volunteer to offer support.


We have gotten clear direction that all action will be taken with the approved guidance of the Emergency Management Director (Tom Goddard, Putney’s Fire Chief). This effort to coordinate mutual aid using this form is a way to gather information only.
