The Common Market Mid-Atlantic has issued a Certificate of Support to the Lawrenceville School for sourcing nutritious foods from local, sustainable farms in 2018. Through its 26,062 pounds of locally sourced food purchases, Lawrenceville supported 28 local farms, 1,438 farm jobs, and 13,365 acres of sustainable family farmland.
The Common Market is a nonprofit regional food distributor with a mission to connect communities with good food from sustainable family farms. They strive to improve food security, farm viability, and community and ecological health.
“News and Notes” is pleased to be featuring a series of articles by Brittany Sun '19 on the theme of “the one key moment” that helped to shape the lives of a selected group of Lawrenceville alumni. As we celebrate our nation's Independence Day, this post seemed particularly appropriate.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
