Go Green: Learning about sustainable food

Go Green
Students at Hobart and William Smith Colleges are learning about sustainable food, while helping the needy. 

This week is Food Week at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. It’s a chance to celebrate, local, healthy and sustainable food. Part of that is students serving up locally-grown greens at the first United Methodist Church in Geneva. 
 
Typically Food Week is a one-day celebration on October 24th but Hobart and William Smith Colleges decided to make a week of it.  
 
Activities for the week include a farmer’s market, film showings, service projects, where students volunteer at local farms and community gardens. Whether it’s in the field, getting hands-on experience, or learning more in a classroom settings, students receive a full experience teaching them about the environment and keeping food local.
 
Food Week really provides an opportunity for students to see “from seed to table”, and how they can experience the local food system, on campus and off, through service at the lunch program.
