This March and April, MIT undergraduates are invited to try Small Boats, Big Taste Haddock Chowder at 10 residence halls across campus! ​

Over the past year, MIT Sea Grant has worked with the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance (CCCFA) to help independent fishermen stay on the water during Covid-19 and supply nutritious haddock chowder meals to communities and food banks in five New England states.

The Small Boats, Big Taste program has now teamed up with MIT Dining to bring the chowder to 10 MIT undergraduate residence halls this spring, after a successful day serving 200 members of the MIT Community at the Stratton Student Center in November.

The Haddock Chowder is currently being served at the following MIT residence halls for undergraduates:

3000+ pounds of chowder will be served at MIT residence halls this March and April.

200,000 pounds of whole haddock will be processed for 867,051 servings of chowder in the program’s first year.
