Dishing up the Local
At The Abbey we know the importance of community. We work with farmers and businesses to bring local produce and products to your tables. Spending our money locally not only helps enrich the local economy, we believe that the fresh, local food delivers enhanced nutrition to you and your children.

Middlebury Union HS Greenhouse
The latest installment in the “Our Partners in Fresh” video series is a bit different from the ones we’ve already done.
Middlebury Union High School science teacher Steve Colangeli approached Abbey and Stanley about the school’s alternative education program and the work it does in the school’s greenhouse. At the beginning of November, Stanley paid them a visit.
Students in the program grow greens, lettuce, kale, etc…, harvest them and hand-deliver them to the cafeteria, where they are used in the salad bar. Many of our schools have similar partnerships.
