A group of Middlebury College students will be traveling to New York City over February break as part of a Middlebury Alternative Break (MAlt) trip. On this trip, MAlt participants will travel to New York City and partner with diverse community food and nutrition organizations. Participants will work with EarthWorks, an urban farm on Governor’s Island doing hands-on work and gaining an understanding of the New York City food system. Middlebury students will also volunteer with City Harvest, running a mobile farmers market in an underserved neighborhood.
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.
