Sarah-Marie Hopf '13, a current Rockefeller Leadership Fellow, was recently profiled on Dartmouth Now for her work in establishing the Dartmouth Food Connection with Katherine Burns '13. The Dartmouth Food Connection, along with Dartmouth Dining Services, works to educate the Dartmouth community about food insecurity in the Upper Valley and helps to raise funds and food donations for Willing Hands through meal swipes and food drives.

The Dartmouth Food Connection continues to grow each year and has raised $11,000 for Willing Hands to date.  The "Swipe for Hunger" events, awareness campaigns and food drops have enabled Willing Hands to distribute food to people in need to various organizations throughout the Upper Valley.
