Moving Through Another Pandemic Year

Mutual Aid is still available to help with emergency needs. The Free Food Pantry (in front of the BALE Commons at 35 South Windsor Street in South Royalton) is open 24/7 throughout the year.

       The Free Store (a thrift store without the need for money; a sharing/swapping space) is every Thursday from 3-6 PM through early fall.

       Our twice monthly E-News features many programs produced locally as well as inspiring suggestions that help us move through this transformative time with wisdom and healing.

       Everything you see about our work is grounded in the Gift Economy (it's ALL free if it needs to be).
