The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties does so much for area and they help in so many ways, and it's more than just food.

Carlos Rodriguez, Executive Director of The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties joined us on the show this morning to talk about some of the different ways the FoodBank is able to help our neighbors.

In addition to providing food, the FoodBank helps by putting money of the hands of those who need it most with some incredible programs. They work with people in unique ways, like free tax assistance for those who qualify.

They also can help you with their work support initiatives to help people acquire the tools to possibly take their careers in different directions.

Another way they can really lend a helping hand is assistance in applying for benefits, which can be a frightening task, but can free up a great deal of money so people can use that cash to do their family food shopping.

There are so many ways the FoodBank helps, and if you need some help or want to assist the FoodBank in providing help, just visit the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties website.
