Middlebury College Organic Farm

The Middlebury College Knoll (part of the Global Food and Food and Farm program) explores food as a medium to cultivate wellbeing in people, place and the planet. 

The organic farm at the Knoll cultivates fruits, vegetables, and flowers on a knoll just west of the College on Route 125. Initiated and maintained by students, the garden offers volunteer hours and internships. 

Nutrition Outreach and Mentoring 

Nutrition Outreach and Mentoring (NOM) is a student organization at Middlebury College that aims to create community and connect people through food and food education. Our student-run group organizes volunteering events and classes with the purpose of both exposing young people to healthy local foods and food practices, and to acquire the independence and knowledge that comes with this life skill. The aims of our initiatives are to establish healthy eating and cooking habits and to raise awareness about nutrition and current food issues among the youth population.

Recipes From Home

Students and families are encouraged to share their favorite recipes from home! We’ll do our best to incorporate them into our dining options.
