AU Students Head to the Corn Belt

By Caitlin Allmaier, SIS/BA '14

Participants in AU’s Alternative Spring Break to the U.S. Corn Belt will be blogging for Food Tank in March.

Participants in AU’s Alternative Spring Break to the U.S. Corn Belt will be blogging for Food Tank in March. The trip, focused around food and environmental justice in the American agri-food industry, will include nine undergraduate and graduate students, who will meet with small farmers, large-scale operations, biotechnology companies, and agricultural theorists in Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri.

Last year’s spring break saw the inaugural journey of AU students to the Midwest. Students said the experience helped give them an increased understanding of the complexities of the U.S. food system. Student participants from last year’s trip are now working with organizations such as the Food Recovery Network and AmeriCorps to make positive and sustainable changes to the American food system.

Food Tank is an independent research institution based in Chicago that aims to seek out and highlight sustainable solutions for the “broken food system” in the United States. With over 100,000 newsletter subscribers and 47,000 Twitter followers , Food Tank has garnered a substantial following over the past year.

This year’s trip is led by Caroline Dillabaugh, a sophomore in the Kogod School of Business, and Caitlin Allmaier, a senior in the School of International Service, with faculty support from Regina Curran, the Assistant Director of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution Services, and Professor Garrett Graddy, of the School of International Service.
