The Global Food & Farm Program explores food system issues through academic courses and hands-on learning opportunities. Students develop leadership skills and focus on creating future solutions for some of the world’s most challenging problems.


Middlebury’s FoodWorks program is a nine-week summer leadership program combining academic and experiential learning about food systems in Vermont.

Sustainable Dining at Middlebury

Middlebury participated in the Real Food Challenge, and reached our goal in 2016 of spending 30 percent of the annual Dining Services budget on food that meets one or more of four criteria: local, ecological, fair, and humane. The Environmental Council food committee continues to focus on sustainable food choices at Middlebury.
