All Of Our Services Are Free
The task of Lunch Break to serve those in need in Monmouth County and beyond is an ever-increasing one. And because we never charge a fee for our services, we rely on your generosity more and more to help our neighbors in need to get back on their feet. Throughout Lunch Break’s 37 years of service to the community, we have provided help for today through feeding, clothing and social service programs, and hope for tomorrow through services such as our mentoring and Life Skills programs. We continue to see individuals and families struggle to make ends meet, but with your support, we can make a difference. There are so many ways you can help!
