Local Ingredients

I continually impressed with Middlebury’s commitment to a social responsible campus not simply among students but as part of an engrained part of the community. Today I learned about this fact:

We spend 25 and 30% of our food budget on local ingredients.  Up to this point in our fiscal year, we have purchased over 1/4 million dollars of Addison County [Middlebury’s county] based products alone.

That is truly amazing. See the details of specific foods.
