VT Old Cemetery Association, Opioid Deaths, Just Food Hub

In Vermont Viewpoint by WDEV Radio

For over six decades, there has been a group in the state righting and cleaning grave markers, clearing brush, fixing fences, repairing damaged markers and recording inscriptions. We’ll hear about the work of the Vermont Old Cemetery Association. Then, we open the phones for a half hour. After that, we’ll discuss why Vermont has seen such a steep rise in opioid deaths and what can be done about it, when Health Department Deputy Commissioner Kelly Dougherty joins us. And we end the show by learning about the Just Food Hub, which distributes ethically sourced food to buying clubs formed by local charities and nonprofit organizations.
