Everyone Eats!


What is this? Everyone Eats! is a new state program for Brattleboro area towns. It's providing federal relief money to local restaurants to make free to-go meals for residents of Brattleboro, Dummerston, Guilford, Putney and Vernon. 
 
Who is eligible? Anyone whose food situation has been challenged by COVID-19 due to unemployment, underemployment, homelessness, or other financial pressures. 
 
What you will receive. Individually packaged COLD ready-to-eat or heat and serve dinners for each person, children and adults. Options available are omnivore, vegetarian, and vegan/GF.
 
When? The  restaurants will provide meals specifically for Dummerston residents who sign up with Dummerston Cares. These dinners will be available for you each day Monday through Thursday from August 10-27 . Dummerston Cares will pick them up in West Brattleboro and and bring them to the Dummerston Town Office parking lot where you can come for them  between 5 and 5:30  (time to be confirmed). 
 
If you prefer to pick up a meal yourself, you can go to the parking lot of the Church Bulding on Flat St. in Brattleboro between 4-6 p.m. beginning Aug. 3. Meals there are on a  first-come first-serve basis. 
 
Limit on dinners. One meal per day per person in a household is available. 
 
Help your neighbor. If you know of anyone else with COVID-19 challenges who would appreciate these dinners, let them know about this program and have them call the Cares Message Line.
