Middlebury College FoodWorks Interns Dig Louisville

Vermont college students are interning this summer in all sorts of food-related programs — in Kentucky. About a dozen students and graduates, members of Middlebury College’s FoodWorks program, are scattered around Louisville doing everything from growing to picking to distributing food from farms.

One intern, Nicole Hoesterey, oversees campers at a day camp who garden in the morning then make and eat lunch with the fruits (and vegetables) of their labor. “I see kids who have not been exposed to very many different vegetables, don’t know how food grows, who saw things growing in the garden, like raspberries, that they had never seen before,” Nicole tells the Courier-Journal.
