Lunch Break has embarked on its 40th year, having been established in 1983 as a basic needs food pantry in response to a grass-roots committee’s concern for the problem of hunger within our communities. Led by Mrs. Norma Todd, the pantry took shape in a local church and has since flourished into a resource center offering not only basic needs, but social service and self-sufficiency programs including life skills training and employment coaching, youth development and mentoring, Family Promise family counseling and housing assistance, as well as nutrition and preventive health care education, to name a few. Because you continue to support Lunch Break’s mission to break the cycle of poverty and hunger and lead our neighbors to become more self-reliant, our new community center at 121 Drs. James Parker Blvd. in Red Bank is taking shape! Stay tuned for more news about our 40th Anniversary, community center construction progress and upcoming events.
