The B.E.A.T. Center will open its doors in May 2016. The 12,000 square foot “one stop” resource center will be home to the second location of JBJ Soul Kitchen, an Ocean County satellite of The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, and the permanent home for Peoples Pantry. Serving an in-need population through emergency food distribution and onsite client services, where families can access benefits such as affordable health care, food stamps (SNAP), free tax preparation, life skills and job search support. The B.E.A.T. Center will also include a culinary training program provided by the FoodBank. Their commercial kitchen will prepare meals for low income children and homebound seniors, while providing job training skills and real time restaurant experience to students in the culinary arts.
Thanks to a generous grant from our partner, OceanFirst Foundation, all donations will be matched dollar for dollar.
