Empty Bowls Project

As part of the Blair Academy Day of Service, students designed and created beautiful food-grade ceramic bowls as a hunger awareness fundraiser for Foodshed Alliance’s LocalShare project. Stop by at the Foodshed Alliance tent at the Blairstown Farmers’ Market and check them out. Suggested donation: $10 to $15.

Food Waste >>

The United States wastes 40% of its food — it is either, discarded, lost or uneaten.

Food Insecurity in NJ >>

Over 1 million people are food insecure in New Jersey.
