Faculty and Staff Families: Attend the Page One Halloween Party!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Page One Literacy is a Middlebury College student organization that seeks to foster a love of reading and learning in the Middlebury community. We do this by organizing various after school reading programs in local elementary schools, but we also occasionally have fun holiday events and our first one of the year is coming up! We will be having a Halloween-themed craft and reading party at the Swift House Inn (25 Steward Lane, Middlebury) on Sunday, October 26th from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. We would love it if you and your children would join us! Questions? Contact Anna Dennis ’17.5, atdennis@middlebury.edu .

Food [in]Justice in the 21st Century Symposium at Middlebury College
October 20 – 24, 2014
Organized by Middlebury students in the Eat Real student group
Schedule of Events

This year’s MCAB fall symposium, hosted by EatReal, focuses on food justice and injustice on local, national, and international scales. Highlighting the social and political implications of food production and consumption, we will also explore how class, gender, and race are intrinsically linked to our present food system. Numerous lectures and workshops will help us to critically examine how policy and activism can address food security and access, creating a more socially just food system for all.
