May 19 2020, 2:46 PM

The location of the Farmers to Families Food Box Program distribution scheduled to take place on Friday, May 22 has been changed.

The food distribution will take place at Lamoille Union High School, 736 VT Route 15 W in Hyde Park. 

The Vermont National Guard and the Vermont Foodbank are partnering with the Abbey Group, which obtained a $5.4 million federal contract, to distribute food.

An event held last week in Berlin was swamped with those seeking food boxes, and food ran out. Organizers had 1,000 units to give away, but estimated 1,900 cars showed up.
