How does local taste?

Pretty amazing, actually!

We purchase directly from local farms whenever possible. Many of those farmers are now partnered with local nonprofits—such as Green Mountain Farm Direct and Vermont FEED. Through those partnerships, our schools can now have their produce delivered directly to their doors.

Let’s Eat!

With cafeterias across four states, we feed a wide variety of people—from elementary schools to high schools, and corporate cafeterias to government offices. Find the page dedicated to your cafeteria using our links below:

Good Food Starts with
Great People

At the Abbey Group, our people aren’t just employees. They’re part of the community. When students file into the cafeteria each day for lunch, our workers will often call them by name. They make lunch an experience.

Our people are parents, neighbors, and friends. They’re nurturing, hardworking, and innovative—not afraid to think outside of the box. They take something as routine as lunch and make it extraordinary.

Simple. Wholesome. Delicious.

“The Abbey Group’s team of food service providers have created interesting, tasty and nutritionally appropriate foods for the breakfast and lunch choices that have captured the imaginations and palates of our students and faculty.”

William D. Lawson
Principal | Middlebury Union High School

Breakfast and lunch free for all students 18 and underThe Abbey Group is thrilled to announce that the USDA recently released the extension of their free meal program for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. This allows us to serve completely free and nutritious meals to all children, regardless of their situation, until the end of this school year. Check with your school's Food Service Director to confirm program availability.

We know that many families were and continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we enter the 2020-2021 school year, The Abbey Group recognizes that our children are learning in completely new environments. With the stress of adapting to long-term remote learning, hybrid model teaching, and various other changes to our normal routine, this move by the USDA allows us to help remove one key stressor: feeding our children. Whether that be in the cafeteria, in the classroom, or at home, The Abbey Group deeply values the importance of a nutritious and filling meal. Quality nutrition has the power to help kids stay focused and do their best work under both ordinary and extraordinary circumstances.

The program is completely free to all children under the age of 18 with no application required. Parents and guardians can also choose to pick up meals for their children.
