Student-run nonprofit tackles food access

Middlebury Foods works to tackle the enormous issue of food access on the local level, with the idea that working at the small-scale inspires and drives larger scale change. The student-run nonprofit sells local foods, connecting Vermonters to their food system and supporting the local economy, as well as non-local, low-cost items. Student volunteers are given the opportunity to connect with the community in and around their college. Student managers explain their belief that feeding the planet and growing better food depend on community-based organizations assessing and adjusting to local needs.
