"Vt. Strong" creators to present check to Foodbank

Barre, Vermont - October 24, 2011

A big boost for the Vermont Foodbank and its efforts to help families after Irene.

The couple that created the "I Am Vermont Strong" T-Shirts will present the Foodbank with a 60-thousand dollar check this Thursday.  Lyz Tomsuden and Eric Mallete created the image.  It went viral and so they started selling T-shirts. The Foodbank says the big donation will help ensure clients impacted by Irene will have wholesome food on the table as cold weather sets in.
