Fridays from 11 – 11:30am at the South Side of the Fairlee Town Hall
Help@fairleevt distributes fresh, local, often organic produce grown or gleaned by the Upper Valley’s Willing Hands.
USDA boxes of groceries provided by Willing Hands and distributed by volunteers from HELP@fairleevt.org will be available to anyone in the Upper Valley experiencing food insecurity during the pandemic. Distribution is from 11:00 to 11:30 at the south entrance of Fairlee Town Hall while supplies last. Please remain in your car (masked, even if vaccinated) while volunteers place the food boxes in your trunk then continue to the end of the building for your meals and exit right.
Food boxes are one per household, two per vehicle. If picking up for more than two households, please request in advance from Help@fairleevt.org by Thursday evening or by ordering at pick-up the previous week. Local eggs and non-perishable items donated to the Orford-Fairlee Food Shelf by neighbors, and assorted toiletries collected by the Cohase Rotary Club will be available this week as well. (Note: All parties in the food distribution chain do their best to provide food that is fresh and healthful. It is always prudent to refrigerate produce immediately and use it as soon as possible.)
Meals supported by the “Everyone Eats” program will be available free to anyone in the Upper Valley experiencing food insecurity during the pandemic. Upper Valley Everyone Eats pays local restaurants $10 per meal to help keep them afloat while providing meals for people in the community–a win-win!
Fairlee and Orford residents are eligible for a $25 gift card to Wing’s or Hannaford’s offered by Fairlee-Orford Food Shelf. Contact Georgette (firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-333-4363).
