Become a supporting member as an individual or a business and contribute to the future of VFN.
Members at the $50 and above levels receive membership pricing on all Vermont Fresh Network events, including a 20% discount on our popular Annual Forum Dinner.
The Vermont Fresh Network strengthens our local food system through the connections between farmers and chefs. Chefs, and other culinary professionals, play a key role in shaping our daily food lives and present unique market opportunities for Vermont food producers. VFN is the primary statewide organization representing this perspective in local food work.
VFN Partner Members meet certain criteria to receive our logo and full marketing benefits. However, our VFN Supporting Membership is open to anyone who supports our mission. Our network has two types of supporting members:
- Individual Donors - who contribute in support of VFN’s mission and the impact our work has on sustainability, health, strong rural communities, and a working landscape. Individual donors contributing $50 or more receive member pricing on all VFN events, including our popular Annual Forum Dinner.
- Supporting Businesses - businesses that support our mission but may not be right for the Partner Member category. This group includes prospective members and businesses in related categories (for example providing equipment, supplies, technical or marketing assistance to VFN Partner Members). Supporting businesses receive access to our professional development resources and member pricing on events. Membership levels are $50, $75 and $200. More details on supporting business benefits are here.
Donations from Supporting Members help make our programs happen and provide us with the resources to try out new, innovative ideas. . .whether it’s going in-depth on key issues like fish from Lake Champlain or expanding Vermont networks through participation in national conferences or bringing collaboration to a new level with projects like DigInVT. This form also gives you an option to donate an additional amount in support of scholarships in our conference program. Learn more about what that means here.
