Mission and Vision

The mission of Just Basics, Inc. is to bring together and structure programs that work with members of the greater Montpelier area to address their basic needs and confront cycles of injustice.


At its inception, Just Basics, Inc. brought together two programs that have long worked to meet basic food needs in the greater Montpelier area, the Montpelier Food Pantry and the Montpelier Home Delivery Program (Meals on Wheels). With the strength of their shared structure in Just Basics, Inc., these two programs are now stronger and better equipped to meet ever-changing needs in the community. This partnership was forged with the intention of creating a catalyst and providing the organization to support these and other initiatives with the common purposes of addressing short-term needs and confronting root causes of poverty and dependence through just and sustainable solutions.
