The new arrivals settling into the Burlington area are getting help adjusting from Feeding Chittenden, Vermont’s largest direct provider of emergency food services.

The nonprofit recently launched a program delivering culturally relevant foods to Afghan refugees. Meat, for example, is slaughtered under appropriate religious guidelines.

"To be able to offer boxes that aren’t so much a part of the westernized food system— it’s really nice to do that in a way where people are really going to enjoy and appreciate the food that they’re getting," Carter said.
