Four Middlebury College Students, Katie Willis ’12, Kate Strangfeld ’12, Emma Burke ’12, and Lauren Honican ’15, took advantage of a Civic Engagement Mini-Grant to fund their trip to the Just Food Conference in New York City, where they spent two days attending workshops, learning about food issues and achievements, and meeting other like-minded people, all over good food and conversation! They plan to keep what they learned in mind in their work with food-related initiatives on campus, as well as share ideas and information with others. For example, check out Kate’s blog post about the event here.
Some of the students will be volunteering to prepare apples for freezer kits to donate to the Addison County Food Shelf, today Friday 3/2, from 3-5 pm at Weybridge House. Come to give back to the community, and learn more about the Conference!

4,303 individuals in Addison County are recipients of food stamps (3SquaresVT). Join us for a screening and discussion around local food access issues.
Food Stamped follows a couple as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget. They consult with members of U.S. Congress, food justice organizations, nutrition experts, and people living on food stamps to take a deep look at America’s broken food system.
