    A crowd of skiers and snowboarders fill the trails at Pico Mountain Resort last year. Pico is set to open Saturday for skiing for this season.

    How would you like to pay only $25 for a one-day lift ticket at Pico Mountain Resort?

    You can if you bring two nonperishable food items to donate to BROC-Community Action in Southwestern Vermont’s emergency food shelf. Opening weekend at Pico is Saturday and Sunday and donations of nonperishable food items will be accepted at the Pico Ticketing Sales Center throughout each day.

    Last year, BROC provided over 44,000 meals to low-income individuals and families who needed help so they would not go hungry. There has been an increase in those accessing the emergency food shelf in light of cuts to the 3SquaresVT benefits that some depend on.

    BROC is a local nonprofit agency that depends on the generosity of others to ensure that people less fortunate in our communities have shelter, food, heat, and clothing.

    For more information about this “food raiser,” contact Pamela Shambo, BROC development specialist at 665-1721 or pshambo@broc.org or Tracy Taylor, director of Operations at Pico Mountain Resort at 422-6255 or ttaylor@killington.com.
