Are you interested in fighting hunger? If so, come learn what one of our peers has already accomplished.

Corinne Almquist (Middlebury ’09) will be giving a talk entitled “Fresh Food For All: A Vermont Gleaner’s Experience” on November 10 at 6:30 PM in Hillcrest 103 (the Orchard). Almquist is a Compton Mentor Fellow who has used her fellowship to provide fresh food for the poor through a process known as gleaning. She has been so successful that, just this week, she was featured in The Christian Science Monitor, in an article called, The need to feed hungry families cultivates new interest in gleaning.” It was an amazingly favorable article, comparing Almquist to Ruth from the Bible, in her endeavors to feed the poor. If you are interested in learning more, see the video, read the article, read her statement on the Middlebury website, or come hear her speak on November 10.
