Everyone Eats

RUTLAND — The Vermont Farmers Food Center (VFFC) has been selected to coordinate the statewide Everyone Eats program in Rutland County. VFFC will distribute the meals from 4 to 6 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from now through Dec. 18, at its downtown campus, 251 West St., Rutland.

Meals will be prepared by independently-owned local restaurants, including Ana’s Empanadas, The Rollin’ Rooster, Little Haveli, Bueno Burrito.

Anyone who has been negatively impacted by COVID-19 is invited to pick up meals. Meals will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Individuals may pick up meals for all members of their household and can request additional meals to deliver to up to three households. Organizations are invited to request and pick up meals in bulk to deliver to their clients.

VFFC is also coordinating the distribution of meals in towns outside of Rutland City, working with town officials and local restaurants and organizations. We plan to distribute meals around the entirety of Rutland County and will publicize these distributions locally as they are scheduled.
