Retreat Farm welcomes community back for its Food Truck Roundup

BRATTLEBORO — The weekly Food Truck Roundup at Retreat Farm returns this summer to help bring the community back together after a long year apart.

The Food Truck Roundup series debuts on Thursday, July 1 with Zara Bode's Little Big Band and continues every Thursday night, from 5 to 8 p.m., through Sept. 2.

A new partnership with the Stone Church will bring a carefully curated selection of live bands to the Square, including the Miles Band, Jatoba, the Gaslight Tinkers, Kotoko Brass, Social Medication, Billy Wylder, Saints and Liars, M.O.D., and Pamela Means and the Reparations with the Soul Magnets.

More than 250 coupon booklets for under-resourced families were handed out at the Everyone Eats! distribution last week, and the remainder will be distributed by Retreat Farm, SUSU commUNITY Farm, and other community organizations, including Groundworks, the Root Social Justice Center, and Edible Brattleboro.

Each coupon booklet provides $25 toward food purchases, ensuring that everyone can enjoy fresh, local food truck fare at the Roundup. Coupon booklets are available at the Farmhouse Creemee stand every day from noon to 6 p.m.
