HELP US RAISE $6,000 OR MORE TO QUALIFY FOR A GRANT OF $25,000!
As a caring community, Lunch Break freely provides food, clothing, life skills training and fellowship to those in need in the greater Monmouth County area and beyond.
We strive to break the cycle of poverty for those we serve and guide our community members in need to self-sufficiency and healthier, more productive lifestyles.
We serve everyone with compassion and dignity.
We Won’t Miss a Meal!
The pandemic is waning but inflation has become a larger burden than ever. Cars continue to drive up to our free food distribution pantry and individuals of all ages come to our dining room daily for a nutritious hot meal and companionship from people who care.
Our primary food programs are hot meals and grocery distributions. Grocery distributions allow our clients to receive eggs, milk, meat, fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as personal care and baby care products. At holiday time, we prepare special grocery bags including a turkey with all the fixings. For those who cannot come to Lunch Break, our volunteers deliver groceries to the homebound and at-risk communities six days a week, including holidays.
Starting in August of 2022, we are implementing an improved nutrition policy for the health of our clients. This policy aims to remove the processed meats and unhealthy food typically associated with soup kitchens, which will help to lead our clients to lower blood-pressure, lower rates of diabetes and cancer, while still being delicious and freshly made.
We’re More Than a Meal!
We mean it when we say: Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow. Our goal is to help our clients become self-sufficient and provide for themselves and their families. We are constantly innovating and adapting our programs to the needs we see in our communities:
All Of Our Services Are Free
Your donation can keep all these essential programs in place. Each $4 you donate allows us to cook and serve a full meal in our dining room. Each $50 we raise fills a grocery bag (or two) for our local families.
During this time-limited campaign, your donation of any amount will help move us closer to qualifying for a generous grant from A Community Thrives. Help put the brakes on poverty in your community!
