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 more than 100 cafeterias across three 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
