Shelves are stocked at the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf in Burlington, Vt., Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009. Around Vermont, demand is up at food shelves as Vermonters lose jobs, try to make ends meet on unemployment and struggle with heating, food and fuel costs. Many charities say they have been able to meet the demand with donations from food drives at businesses, church groups and schools, but wonder if they'll raise enough during the upcoming holiday season.
