Plainfield’s Community Bagged Supper Resumes Feb. 23

PLAINFIELD – Plainfield’s bagged community supper will resume on Tuesday, Feb. 23, after a two-month hiatus to avoid holiday-related COVID-19 spikes. Participants can expect a variety of precooked soups and take-out items from which to choose, as well as side items such as bread, a choice of baked dessert and an apple.

Pick up in Plainfield will be at the Grace United Methodist Church in the lower village, from 6 to 7 p.m. Participants are asked to wear masks, to choose from the menu outside, and then to pick up at the side door of the church. Each one-meal bag serves two people.

Marshfield’s Onion River Food Shelf at the Old Schoolhouse Common will provide the balance of the bagged meals to participants in Marshfield the next day, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

A contribution from a community household and food discounts from two suppliers will make the supper available. Space is provided by Grace Church, bread for the meal is donated by the Red Hen Bakery in Middlesex and the main meal soups are prepared and provided with significant discount by Joe’s Kitchen in Montpelier.

Leave a message at (802) 454-1203 (before that Tuesday) for more details or if you would like to contribute for future meals. The church door and the Old Schoolhouse entrance are both handicapped accessible.
