FELLOWSHIP REFLECTIONS

Major: Food and the Environment and Music
Hometown: Concord, NH

My fellowship experience:

This fellowship reaffirmed my desire to work on issues related to local/community-based food. I felt passionate about the USDA survey, the urban farm project, and all of Matthew 25’s efforts to make healthy food more available to the community. This passion made the work easier and more enjoyable to complete.
