What We Do


What We Do- T

Emergency Food Distribution

The FoodBank’s largest program is Emergency Food Distribution. The FoodBank collects donated food and distributes this to people in need through a network of over 300 charitable programs in both counties. Together, we provided more than 10 million meals to people in need.

Hunger in Monmouth and Ocean Counties is no longer a crisis that can be remedied with emergency food alone. That’s why the FoodBank works toward long-term solutions to the chronic problem of food insecurity.

Through programs and services like our Culinary Training Program, outreach programs such as SNAP, affordable healthcare and free tax assistance, along with nutrition education, we are working to build food secure communities.
