The following information about the event was provided by the Vermont Foodbank:
The Vermont National Guard will be at the North Ave exit of VT Route 127, on Tuesday, 5/26, from 10AM-2PM distributing non-perishable food boxes, along with produce, chicken, and dairy products provided by the Abbey Group while supplies last. Anyone is welcome to come pickup food.
Vehicles should take VT Route 127 from the Plattsburg Ave on ramp and proceed southbound to the North Ave exit where the Guard will be distributing food.
We will be distributing Farmers To Families meal kits containing meat, produce, and dairy products.
We will also be distributing non-perishable food from FEMA.
All food will be distributed while supplies last.
How does it work?
Food is available while supplies last. Just pull up in your car, open your trunk, and the appropriate amount of food will be loaded by members of the Guard.
Please be sure there is space available in your car for the boxes of food.
The National Guard requests that you please not bring your pet to the distribution to ensure their safety while loading meal boxes into vehicles.
Please wear a mask when picking up food.
Those who are ill, have been advised to quarantine, or lack transportation can send a friend or relative to pick up meals for them.
We are making every effort to streamline the distribution process. However, depending on turn out at each event, you may have to wait in your car. We suggest you bring water and snacks in the event there is a wait.
