2 mins read

KILLINGTON — Killington Resort recently announced a Community Grocery Giveaway happening on Tuesday, April 21, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The giveaway is part of Killington Resort’s “Play Forever” commitment to protect the environment, inspire participation, and pledge to support the local community.

“When we realized farmers were having to dump their fresh milk because demand was low with schools and restaurants closed, we saw an opportunity to support them and the greater community,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort.

Killington community members, employees of local Killington businesses, and employees of Killington resort are invited to receive free groceries at Snowshed Base Lodge Tuesday, April 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

There will be 700 prepackaged grocery bags of food and provisions such as meats, vegetables, Thomas Dairy milk, Vermont Farmstead cheese, eggs, produce, and breads.

The distribution will be first come, first served.

Following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), all those picking up groceries should remain in their car.

Care packages will be put into the trunks of cars.

This is the second free grocery giveaway provided by Killington Resort.

The first one was for resort employees held over two days in mid-March.

WHERE

Snowshed Base Lodge
3861 Killington Road, Killington, VT 05751

WHEN

Tuesday, April 21, 2020
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Additionally, Killington Resort, in collaboration with the Town of Killington and Castleton University, is opening a food pantry later this month located at the Castleton Lodge at Killington.

The new food pantry is community funded and will continue to support Vermont farmers and local community members during the global health crisis.
