Check it out…Windham County is incorporating local food into our school meals!
Changing School Meals
Windham County’s contracted food servcie providers, Cafe Services and the Abbey Group, have been working hard to make meal offerings more nutritious over the past few years. Over the past few years, our dedicated Food Service Directors have formed relationships with local farmers and has begun ordering directly from farms. Local purchases are now being tracked. Both Café Services and the Abbey Group are increasing local offerings by partnering with the new Windham Farm and Food Network, which delivers local foods directly to institutions.
Our Cafeteria pages provide a number of resources to help school administrators and food service directors fight hunger in Vermont and incorporate more local food in our school meals!
