10 Lucky Supporters Receiving a Bounty Of Specialty Foods & Beverages

Vermont Specialty Food Association The strong support of Vermonters far and wide helped the Vermont Specialty Food Association to raise over $1200 to support Vermont specialty food and beverage producers of all shapes and sizes during its inaugural raffle fundraiser. Winners were drawn on August 31st and have been notified by email that they were the recipient of one of ten prizes. Raffle participants should check their email provided at the time of donation to see if they were selected for a prize.

The Association’s goal was to highlight the delicious food and beverage producers right here in the Green Mountains while raising additional funds to help elevate the organization to the next level. Because of the generous contributions of Vermonters throughout the state, VSFA is one step closer to achieving  that goal! Funds raised will be used to help the association continue to support the growth and sustainability of the specialty food industry in Vermont.

“Vermont’s local businesses need support now more than ever. VSFA is proud to be a voice and champion of these outstanding food producers,”  said Erin Sigrist, Executive Director of the Vermont Specialty Food Association. “These producers are the very essence of the Vermont landscape; making delicious and nourishing products, supporting their communities, their employees, and the working landscape of Vermont. This fundraiser has helped the value-added industry continue to grow and keep our producers and their communities vibrant.”
