This May 23rd we are marching for FOOD JUSTICE.
This is your invitation to cultivate change and plant seeds of community activism.
The following is our update on your regional NWNJ gathering to March Against Monsanto, The Food Matters March, May 23rd in Sparta, NJ starting at 65 Main St.
Our mission is to educate, and inform NJ that Food Matters, and to empower to speak the truth regarding all threats to our Food.
To kick off our Food Matters March, we are inviting people to bring a food item to donate to the local Presbyterian Church food pantry, at the start we will have a truck to load!
On May 23rd, we plan to arrive at the Municipal Building with our offerings, posters, banners, rolling art (no motorized vehicles), and align in the contingencies FOOD, SEEDS, MAM, SOIL, WATER, BEES AND BUTTERFLIES, AIR, AND TRADE-STOP THE TPP. We will march to the Post Office corner of Route181.
The March will conclude with a gathering at Dykstra Park so that we have a stage and field for speakers, skits, puppet shows, and any forward tents that each organization would like to set up.
Currently, we have a team of amazing sponsors and co-sponsors; Food and Water Watch NJ, Genesis Farms, Foodshed Alliance, Air, Soil, and Water, Sussex County Co-op, Transitions Newton and NWNJ, Skylands Group- NJ Sierra,The Delaware Riverkeepers, GMOFreeNJ, and Environment NJ.
We are now officially launching our fundraising campaign. We hope that your organization and members will help with a donation to become a sponsor or co-sponsor of this event as well as bring out your communities to Sparta.
We are working diligently to drive funds! We are accepting donations at our fund drive events including the movie Food Matters with the Skylands Group, NJ Sierra on May 12th in Newton. We are selling unique Non GMO magnets, Non GMO buttons and Bee hats that we personally created! Dozens of organizations have been contacted and together we can raise the funds necessary.
