Since 1983, Lunch Break has continually served the food-insecurity needs of its under-employed community members, never missing a meal service even in the midst of natural disasters, government shutdowns and the COVID-19 pandemic. As current state statistics point to an increase in the need for food services, Lunch Break is ready to meet the demand, but we need your support to sustain daily operations.
More than 650,000 people in New Jersey face hunger every day and approximately 175,000 of them are children. In Monmouth and Ocean counties alone, 1 in 10 people are food insecure and 1 in 5 of those are children.
The good news is that the hunger crisis can be solved by working together. Through continued donations, our community kitchen has provided 12 percent more meals and our pantry has increased grocery distribution by 27 percent since January 2022.
