Rally for Change

How It Works

Anytime you check out at City Market, you can choose to round up your total to the nearest dollar. Each month, we support Feeding Chittenden and other organizations working to strengthen our community. With roughly 4,000 transactions each day across both stores, we all have the opportunity to rally for community-wide change.

Six people in winter coats stand in a row in front of a painted mural. The mural features a mountain on the left and a lake on the right. The second and fourth people from the left each hold an oversized check. The leftmost check is made out to COTS. The rightmost check is made out to the Intervale Center.

Feeding Chittenden

Feeding Chittenden has pivoted from a congregate meal site to curbside pickup of pre-bagged and boxed groceries, as well as increased deliveries to older adults, people who have a disability, are sick or injured, or are unable to leave their homes. Additionally, a hotline for emergency deliveries was created to get immediate hunger relief to households who could not visit our location and had nowhere else to turn for help.
