This year NOM volunteered in a multi-age homeroom at the Bridge School teaching lessons on a variety of different local in season vegetables including broccoli, kale, parsnips, cabbage, beets, carrots and mixed greens. The students also helped prepare the vegetables for taste testing!
Check out former NOM president Rachel’s blog from her time abroad! It includes many photographs of delicious food from Peru.

Below is just one excerpt from Rachel’s blog: “Ceviche! Pretty much Peru’s national dish. Fish “cooked” in lime juice with peppers, cilantro and onion. On the side there’s always sweet potato and corn. It’s almost perfect, in my opinion. Healthy, delicious, balanced between spicy (ceviche), sweet (sweet potato) and netural (corn).”
Next year we will have a great new group of students leading the child nutrition education program here at Middlebury College.

NOM is so grateful to this year’s board for their hard work and dedication! This year we volunteered with many community partners including Addison Central Teens, Mary Johnson Childcare Center, the Bridge School and Mary Hogan Elementary School. We also collaborated with other campus organizations including Sister-to-Sister, Community Friends, Dance Marathon and Relay for Life. All of this great work would not have been possible without your help!
