Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vermont has partnered with The Food Project to establish a scholarship for high school youth who have completed a minimum of 100 hours of service in their community. "The Food Project Make a Difference Scholarship" will award $5,000 towards tuition and fees at Green Mountain College for students who have completed at least 50 hours of service at The Food Project and 50 hours of service at another registered non-profit organization.

The Food Project has the privilege of working with over 3,000 dedicated volunteers each year. Our volunteers include teenagers, young adults, adults, and senior citizens and come from schools, universities, corporations, non-profits, religious organizations, community organizations, and more. We are very excited for this opportunity to reward some of our youngest and most dedicated volunteers.

Our discussion topics will include: Growing Food; Gathering Food; Food Worker Justice; Advocacy, Policy, and Civic Engagement; Diversity in the Food Movement; and Understanding Hunger Today. Attendees are also encouraged to self-organize around other topics of their choosing!

Come out and share your ideas!
