Members of the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine's Humanism in Medicine club spent the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday staining fences, gates, and compost bins at the Food for Thought Edible School Project in Roanoke.

Students, faculty, and staff at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, spent Martin Luther King, Jr. Day staining wood at Roanoke's Food for Thought Project, which supports the city schools' focus on STEM-H (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Health Sciences) education. 

The project connects participating schools with local farmers to help students, staff, and community volunteers better understand the local food supply chain and its importance to environmental and economic sustainability. Now that's food for thought!
