Next month, Fulfill (formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties) will begin providing free breakfasts and lunches to low-income children attending summer recreation programs.

The programs sponsored by Fulfill are within Monmouth and Ocean Counties in places where kids ages 18 and younger can receive a meal in a safe, organized environment.

Participating sites include summer camp programs at schools, churches and community centers where kids are enrolled. In addition, there are also open sites where any child can go to receive a meal, regardless of enrollment.

Free breakfasts and lunches are distributed to the sites every day, to the places where the participating children will receive their meals.

This really helps fill the gap between the school year and when children are used to getting their meals during the day.

This summer, Fulfill prepares to help provide meals to over 1,000 children in our community. This is critical for many of these kids, as they would otherwise be struggling with hunger throughout the summer months.
