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!
NOM attended the annual Stone Soup Soiree hosted by ACORN to celebrate many of this year’s Harvest of the Month accomplishments. This year the event was held on Thursday, May 5 at Lincoln Peak Winery with a focus on farm to school initiatives in Addison County.
Students and volunteers make carrot muffins together in the Mary Johnson Childcare Center kitchen as part of the April Harvest of the Month lessons focused on carrots.

In the fall of 2015, The Campus featured some of the Community Engagement student organizations. NOM was included in this spread! The spread highlighted NOM’s goal of introducing local children to healthy cooking and eating.
Recently NOM has become involved with an Environmental Coalition (ECo) that the Campus Sustainability Coordinators have started. The idea is to bring together the various efforts of sustainability-focused groups on campus with our first project being a presidential debrief we will be delivering to Laurie Patton in January. Due to this involvement NOM has been added to the campus sustainability webpage under Student Groups. Find out more information at go/sustainability
