Kenyon has won national recognition for bringing local foods into the dining hall. But students love the Food for Thought program because it also immerses them in internships, activism, and hands-on research—experiences that connect them to area farmers and that make a real difference for rural communities. Whether you take a course in sustainable agriculture, join PEAS (People Endorsing Agrarian Sustainability), or just eat in the newly renovated dining hall, Kenyon's rural location offers unique opportunities for understanding food issues and their impact on society.
