This article reports that an anonymous graduate has donated $2.5 million to Bates College to support the college's use of organic, natural and farm fresh foods. The gift, one of the largest in the college's history, will expand the present program and bring dining services' local food budget to 28%, says Christine Schwartz, director of dining. The gift also plays into the college's new yearlong initiative on sustainability called Nourishing Body and Mind: Bates Contemplates Food.
