How The Apothecarium aids hunger relief efforts in New Jersey

The Apothecarium was a proud sponsor of The Maplewood Chili Cookoff, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide healthy, nutritious food to local families who need it most. All the proceeds (100%) from the event went directly to The MEND hunger relief network of Essex County.
This year, the Maplewood Chili Cookoff raised an impressive $13,000 for MEND. There were over 30 chilis entered in the contest and more than 300 people came out to support the cause and enjoy a variety of flavors and styles of homemade chili. The event was a huge success in terms of raising money for MEND and bringing the community together for a fun and tasty event. Congratulations to the participants, winners, and organizers of the 2023 Chili Cookoff.
