BENNINGTON — This week, the Abbey Group has started to deliver meals through areas of Bennington, Pownal and Shaftsbury for Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union students and families.

Meal distribution via modified bus routes will occur Monday through Friday in addition to pickups continuing at the middle school. Grab and go meals will continue to be available for pickup at the middle school during the week from 7:30 a.m. to noon.

All kids 18 and younger can get a meal for free. Meals will be dropped off by people in either Abbey Foods vans or a car with Abbey Foods license plates.

Students attending in-person schooling will receive breakfast and lunch while in their buildings. These meals will continue to be prepared at the middle school production kitchen. Students are permitted to bring their own lunch if they wish.

Meal menus are posted weekly on the Meals for Students tab under COVID-19 resources at the SVSU website. Each stop will last for 10 minutes.
