Hunger is a problem gripping many families in Monmouth & Ocean Counties, and some of the statistics are staggering.

Let's start with this hard to believe statistic. According to Fulfill of Monmouth & Ocean, (formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties), one in ten of our neighbors do not have enough to eat. Stop and think about that for a minute in the context of your own neighborhood.

Here is even more heartbreaking news. Among those without enough to eat, over 46,000 are children in Monmouth & Ocean Counties. This is why Fulfill of Monmouth & Ocean works so hard all year long.

If you think you can help, please visit the Fulfill of Monmouth & Ocean website. There are many ways to help, from donating to volunteering and much, much more.

And don't forget, our annual pre-Thanksgiving morning show broadcast from the Atlantic Club of Manasquan is going on now! (11/22 5:30am - 10:00am). Stop by and say hello!
