“Providing healthy, local meals to our busy working community members is a win-win solution.” said Carol McQuillen, co-founder of Common Roots. “It all started when at brainstorm Chef Jim from Shelburne Farms suggested the idea as a way to maximize our produce inventory and support other local farms while simultaneously raising funds to sustain our food education and food access programs.”
Three talented chefs from Shelburne Farms have prepared a menu of 6 hearty meals that will come with yummy salads and homemade dressings: Exquisite Enchiladas, Brilliant Barley Risotto, Substantial Shepard’s Pie, Legendary Lasagna, Marvelous Mac ‘n Cheese, and Champion’s Chili. Each entrée comes with locally sourced meats, such as beef from Bread and Butter Farm, pork from Rugg Brook Farm and chicken from Maple Wind Farm. Each entrée has a vegetarian option.
According to Shelburne Farms Executive Chef Jim McCarthy has been supporting the mission of Common Roots for five years, “There is so much interest among chefs to support our community. I have no doubt that our involvement will further Common Root’s effort to increase the long-term sustainability of their ground-breaking food education and food access programs. Farm to Fork Meals-to-Go will be popular. Who wouldn’t want to come by the Wheeler House on their way home from work and have their locally sourced meal ready to take home, relax and enjoy?”
Proceeds from each prepaid Farm to Fork meal to go will support Common Root’s five programs (Farm to School, Farm-to-Go, Growing Garden/Growing Kids, Community Food Shares, and Gatherings on the Land). Common Roots has been providing South Burlington with food education and food access programming for ten years.
Prepaid meals will be ready for pickup at the Wheeler House at 1100 Dorset Street in South Burlington every Tuesday between 4:30 and 6:30 pm from February 12th through March 19th. Each set of 6 hearty entrées come with fresh salad and delicious homemade dressing for $84 ($14 per meal).
