SARATOGA SPRINGS/ WILLISTON/ S. BURLINGTON, VT — Healthy Living Market and Café today announces that a combined $49,167 has been donated to food banks in each of its three communities as a result of its round-up campaign, Together We Can Help.
Four organizations received a donation for the 2020 fundraising campaign. In Saratoga, the Wilton Food Pantry and the Franklin Community Center Food Shelf have each received $3,186. In Vermont, $24,701 will be provided to Feeding Chittenden and $18,904 to the South Burlington Food Shelves.
“Making such impactful donations is a team effort,” says Eli Lesser-Goldsmith, CEO of Healthy Living. “We are thankful to our incredible guests who share our desire to build stronger communities by helping our friends and neighbors.

With so many people facing hunger in the communities we serve since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, we hope these donations will make a difference.”
