Go Vermont!, Vermont Bike and Ped Coalition, CCTA, and CCV will be there to provide information on alternative transportation options.
CCV's Moving Toward Sustainability class is working on solutions, guidance, information, and support that will encourage more people to leave their cars at home in favor of carpools, the bus, walking, biking, and other muscle-powered transportation. Let's make our move to Winooski an opportunity to start new patterns, and move toward greater campus sustainability! All visitors can enter to win free raffle items.

CCV students prepared dozens of different dishes including Ethiopian injera, Vietnamese egg rolls, Nepalese aaloo gobi tarkari, Cuban empanada and Colombian ceviche. They hailed from many countries including Uruguay, Brazil, the Netherlands, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Mali, China, Guam and the United States. Most importantly they reinforced the connections they have to home, each other and the greater CCV community. Champlain College student Van, a CCV graduate from Vietnam, told me “I came back to this because I love it and I still have friends here.”
Thank you to all of our cooks, hosts, musicians, and attendees for making the IFF an event to remember.
