Sterling College's commitment to good food is apparent- from collaborations between kitchen staff and the school's nutrition class, to the use of food from the Sterling farm on menus, this institution is doing plenty of good work to celebrate Vermont's harvest. We love the example of testing different carrot varieties to be grown at the college farm, then taste testing different recipes using those crops.
Each day, the kitchen feeds about 120 people including students, college staff, and their families. The seasonal, rotational menus accommodate dietary restrictions and showcase Vermont-grown produce and meats. About 20% of their food comes from the college's farm, and over 50% is sourced locally. Simeon and his staff take pride in their site's food-inclusivity, and the important role that meal time plays in this close-knit community is apparent.
