Without the support of community members, Feed the Freezer could not be successful.

    Nearly 5,000 home-cooked meals have been prepared by community volunteers since the project began in 2012. These meals are then frozen and given out at BROC's emergency food shelf. The fact that the meals can be microwaved especially give folks staying in hotels a chance for a nutritious meal at least once a month.

BROC - Community Action in Southwestern Vermont's history spans 50 years. The why of our existence has not changed for five decades. We exist to give people a chance: to allow the disadvantaged members of our communities to develop and use their capacities and abilities so they can share in the promise of this nation.

The how of BROC's existence goes back to 1964, when a notion called "community action" emerged from President Kennedy's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime.

"I was very happy that BROC was able to help my family get into housing. We were living in our car for several months before someone told us about the services there. I don't know what we would have done come winter."
