Scotland Service Learning Study Abroad
Dumfries, Scotland, is about 4,000 miles away from the University of Georgia’s Athens Campus, but the population there faces the same problems as many Georgia towns, including food insecurity and health concerns connected to nutrition. As Georgians, we hear about these problems often, but it’s sometimes hard to put them into perspective. Over spring break last month, a group of 10 College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences students traveled to Dumfries as part of the college’s “Scotland: Food Insecurity Service-Learning Project,” to lend a hand and to put the problems facing their own communities into perspective.
