Food Insecurity web page from CAPA at Bennington College
In spring 2019, Bennington College was awarded $1 million from the Andrew W.

This collaboration aims to both address the pressing problem of food insecurity in the area and to develop an interdisciplinary and responsive humanities curriculum with students, faculty, and the community, creating a model from which other higher education institutions can learn and build.
