The FoodBank Brings Healing And Hope To The Jersey Shore
The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties distributes approximately
7 million pounds annually through a network of 260 feeding programs,
such as soup kitchens, food pantries, and shelters. One out of every
ten people living in Monmouth and Ocean Counties receives food from The FoodBank.

Since Superstorm Sandy struck the Jersey Shore on October 29, 2012,
The FoodBank has been actively involved in the work to bring relief
and comfort to the communities we serve.

Working shoulder to shoulder with relief agencies, government programs
and others involved in the recovery effort, we distributed food for approximately 1 million meals.

Here are some of the ways The FoodBank has helped in the recovery

We provided food for hot meals prepared by emergency feeding programs
for displaced residents in communities across Monmouth and Ocean

Our Culinary Kitchen prepared hot meals daily for churches and
civic organizations serving storm-stricken communities.

Disaster kits and other critically-needed items were delivered to
some of the region’s most hard-hit areas.

We are working to rebuild agencies that were damaged by the storm.
Several food pantries incurred heavy losses of food and equipment.
Many others are coping with the influx of hundreds of additional
families in need of emergency food.

Our work is far from over. Helping our neighbors as they rebuild
their homes and their lives will take months, if not years. Our
most critical need at this time is financial support – a $1 donation
can provide 3 meals. In partnership with all of our supporters,
we will continue to deliver food and hope to all those in need in
Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
