ST. ALBANS — The National Guard will be distributing boxes of food to families in need on Thursday, May 28 at the Franklin County State Airport in Highgate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The boxes, which are put together by the Abbey Group, include dairy and produce from Vermont farmers, as well as non-perishable items and chicken.

The Farmers to Families program is the result of a $5 million grant from USDA and is being coordinated by the Vermont Food Bank.

The distributions will last as long as food is available.
