SOUTH HERO -- The Vermont Foodbank will be at the Folsom Education and Community Center on Friday distributing Meals Ready to Eat (MRE) for the needy.
The Foodbank will distribute the meals from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with help from Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Vermont National Guard and the Grand Isle County Sheriff’s Department.
Anyone in need of food is welcome to stop at the South Street site. The handout is designed to help Vermonters, especially those facing financial strain due to the deadly COVID-19 virus.
The Foodbank will provide a seven-day supply of Meals Ready to Eat for each member of a Vermont household.
A similar distribution is planned also for Friday at the Northeast Kingdom International Airport in Coventry.
Other scheduled for this week are Wednesday at the Hartness State Airport in North Springfield and Thursday at the William H. Morse State Airport in Bennington.
The low-sodium meals are individually packaged with a variety of options. They include chili mac, veggie lasagna, penne pasta, spaghetti and meatballs and beef ravioli.
