Community News: Public School Water Fountains, Talde hosting a Kamayan Dinner, and more

Jersey City

  • With the ongoing and worsening budget shortfalls in our school system, Jersey City Public Schools are continually without water for students. Because of lead contamination, drinking fountains and sinks are unusable for drinking water and instead, the school system relies on outside bottled water because of the lack of budget to replace. However, it's expensive and the bottled dispensers often run out, leaving students without water for the day. To provide a more successful and environmentally sustainable solution, student Harshal Agrawal has started a petition proposing line filtration and lead testing
  • Talde is holding a special Kamayan dinner this Thursday, 9/13. The theme is Magellan's Takeover and the dinner will have a Spanish influence. Tickets are $75/person for all you can eat and drink.
