MIDDLEBURY, Vt. (AP) - A group of Middlebury College students has created an unusual program that sells high-quality food to Vermont residents at a fraction of the cost for the same products at a supermarket.

It's not free, it's separate from area food shelves and there are no income restrictions. But the group sells its products through area community organizations and churches and aims for a clientele that doesn't always eat well.

The group sells pre-packaged boxes that contain enough food for a family of four for a week and a number of healthy recipes. The cost is $35. That is about 40 percent less expensive than a grocery store.

Middlebury Junior Harry Zieve-Cohen says they're selling supermarket quality food at fast-food prices.
