About Food Works
Food Works was founded in 1986 to address the root causes of childhood hunger by returning students and their communities back to the land. Now, Food Works at Two Rivers Center is Central Vermont's hands-on food and agricultural education center working to strengthen local food systems and empower people to grow, prepare, preserve and share their own foods. We offer ongoing classes, workshops and summer camps on food growing, cooking, food preservation, backyard medicinal herbs and nutrition basics provide access to healthy local food for institutions and individuals through our Farm-to-Table Program. For more than 25 years, Food Works has been a driving force in creating community food security in Central Vermont by making a difference in people's lives and empowering them to take control of the food they eat. During this time, we have never swayed from our unique position as a grassroots organization that develops community-based approaches to address the growing concerns of poor nutrition, diet, health, land use, and declining food security. By connecting people back to the land and the natural world, all of our work mobilizes people to effect positive change for themselves and their neighbors.
