Serving local food to our community

The Lunchbox provides Northeast Kingdom communities with nutritious, locally-sourced meals throughout the summer months. Children 18 and under eat for free, and adults can purchase meals for $8, cash and check only.

Many Lunchbox sites will also feature a “Market Basket” with free donated and gleaned produce from school gardens and farmers. Last summer, through donations and the bounty of our school gardens we were able to distribute more than 50 coolers of garden produce, local milk, and eggs to community members.

In addition to increasing food access, the Lunchbox teaches community members knowledge and skills to purchase and prepare low-cost, healthy meals.

Summer 2023 schedule to be announced. Stay tuned!
