A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

Twelve Middlebury students will be traveling to Washington, DC over February break as part of a Middlebury Alternative Break (MAlt) trip. We will be exploring the ethics of inequality in the capital of one of the wealthiest nations in world history. Participants will be spending most of their time helping prepare meals with the DC Central Kitchen, a social enterprise focused on reusing food waste to make quality, healthy meals for low-income individuals. We will also spend time with Bread for the City, helping to ensure that food-insecure individuals have access to fresh produce.

MAlt is a student organization that provides student-designed and student-led service trips for Middlebury College students. MAlt offers opportunities for students to participate in strong direct service that seeks to address needs as determined by a local community partner. MAlt is committed to a needs-blind acceptance policy. As a result, we do extensive fundraising to ensure that participants’ financial needs can be met. We all work together to support one another, which is why this fundraiser is so critical to our efforts.
