Terp Farm Fall Festival

The UMD Dietetic Interns pitched in to help at UMD’s 2nd Annual Terp Farm Fall Festival, on Friday October 23.  The UMD Terp Farm grows produce for use both in Campus Dining and the UMD Campus Pantry, which provides food to staff and students in need. 
The interns assisted with parking, painting pumpkins and doing whatever they could to help visitors experience the amazing UMD Terp Farm. They also managed to have fun.
