On November 10, the Alpha Zeta Green Mountain Chapter at the University of Vermont hosted and prepared a pancake breakfast for interested community members and students. Pancakes, homemade applesauce and fresh pressed cider was prepared by the members. Proceeds from the breakfast went to Green Mountain Farm-to-School, an Vermont organization that seeks to make elementary school lunches healthier and promote buying locally. Approximately $200 was raised during the event. Eight Alpha Zeta members, six of them being officers, helped out. There were about 40 attendees which were a mix of students and their families, as well as faculty from the university.
