Lunch Break freely provides food, clothing, life skills and fellowship to those in need in Monmouth County and beyond.

We Serve Everyone With Dignity and Compassion

In January 1983, 35 people gathered at the Friends Meeting House in Shrewsbury to discuss the issue of hunger in Monmouth County. Lead by Mrs. Norma Todd for over 25 years, they committed themselves to help the community members who find it difficult to provide the bare necessities for their families.

We continue to serve our community members in need to this day, with the same passion, dedication, and community support which is the foundation established by Mrs. Todd years ago. Several programs have been added to the Lunch Break roster of services in recent years, such as the Children’s Cooking Class Program and the Saturday breakfast. Our vision is to lead the region as the comprehensive food, nutrition, and life skills resource for community members in need.
