EdAdvance Food Service is working in collaboration with Region 7, Torrington and Winchester Public Schools to offer meals for students during school shutdown. Meals will be provided at two locations in the area, Vogel-Wetmore School located at 68 Church Street in Torrington and Pearson Middle School located at 2 Wetmore Avenue in Winsted. Meals will be provided in a drive thru fashion at both sites Monday thru Friday 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. Any child 18 or under will be provided a Grab and Go bag lunch for that day and a breakfast for the next morning. Questions may be directed to Becky Tyrrell, Food Service Director at 860-567-0863 ext. 1148.
We know that COVID-19 has imposed difficulties and hardships beyond the closing of school. At Botelle, we are a family - and although we are currently out of sight, our students and families are not out of our minds, thoughts, and prayers! There are many local organizations who want to support children and families during this crisis. If you need services, financial support or food assistance at this time, please don't hesitate to reach out:
