The Kent Place Middle School is holding its annual Tag Sale on Saturday, May 16, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the school’s Dining Hall at 42 Norwood Avenue, Summit, NJ.
The organization’s website states that the Fair Food Program “is a unique partnership among farmers, farmworkers and retail food companies that ensures humane wages and working conditions for the workers who pick fruits and vegetables on participating farms. It harnesses the power of consumer demand to give farmworkers a voice in the decisions that affect their lives, and to eliminate the longstanding abuses that have plagued agriculture for generations.”
The Middle School students learned about this organization during the school’s annual Global Perspectives Day, which this year, discussed the topic of “Food.” This day allowed students, faculty and staff to learn about and discuss the various ethical, global, mathematical, scientific, historical, nutritional, sociological, literary, technological and cultural issues surrounding food.
The sale will feature clothing, books and many other household items.
The Kent Place Sophomore Car Wash will also be held on the campus at the same time as the Tag Sale. A portion of the car wash proceeds will benefit the earthquake relief efforts in Nepal.
