As a Food Security Specialist at Hunger Free Vermont, Phil Morin provides integrated outreach and training on 3SquaresVT, a federal nutrition program that works to eliminate food insecurity. In addition to training service providers who work directly with Vermonters in need of nutrition resources, Phil deploys targeted strategies to reach vulnerable populations such as college students, seniors, new Americans, and working families with young children. Phil works collaboratively with federal, state, and community partners to address barriers to participation and ensure all Vermonters gain access to the programs for which they are eligible.
Phil graduated from the University of Vermont in 2012 and has remained actively involved in his alma mater as an advisor to several of the organizations he was a member of as an undergraduate student, including Phi Mu Delta Fraternity and Feel Good. His ongoing involvement with college students, and his understanding of the issue of hunger, has made him acutely aware of the growing issue of food insecurity in our college communities. He now leads Hunger Free Vermont's effort to address this problem.
A native to rural Vermont, Phil is proud to work toward a mission that is making a difference for his fellow Vermonters. Phil lives in the Old North End of Burlington and has spent the last few years restoring his 1825 home with his partner. In his free time, Phil can be found reading, working in his garden, spending time with family, or volunteering at his local library.
