For the second year in a row, the School Nutrition Association of Vermont has awarded an Abbey Group employee the prestigious award for Outstanding Achievement in Child Nutrition”. This year the award went to the Barstow Memorial School Site Supervisor and Chef, Meggen Hanna.

 In her nomination letter for the “Outstanding Achievement” Award, Carol Wright had this to say:

“Meggen always has a smile for students and staff.  Since she has been in our cafeteria, the food is so much better.  We now use local foods and foods from our school garden, along with a salad bar, homemade soup, and handmade bread.  She brings in guest speakers and programs, leads culinary arts classes, mentors students interested in becoming chefs, works with elementary students to do fall harvest in the school garden, and gives her time after hours to be part of our Wellness Committee.  She has enthusiasm for her job and our school and it shows every day.” 

Meggen is a huge asset to the Abbey family and we’re very proud to have her on our team. Great job Meggen!
