Vermont First Values
Vermont First is Sodexo's commitment to the Vermont Community to support:
- Vermont's local economy through the creation of inclusive market opportunities accessible for local producers, including BIPOC, woman owned, and small-scale farm and food businesses.
- Accessible and equitable opportunities for employees to gain the knowledge and skills for food system careers.
- An environmentally sustainable food system through food purchases, and resource management such as ensuring that all foods are used for their highest and best purpose and not considered waste.
- BIPOC participation, representation, collaboration, and access to resources in order to help create a racially equitable food system and to remove racist structural barriers for economic opportunity.
