THE STORY:

1983 - 2014

WE'RE SO MUCH MORE THAN A MEAL

Thirty-one years ago, Lunch Break served 150 hot meals a week to Red Bank residents. Last year, we served over 61,000 hot lunches to our most vulnerable neighbors who come to Lunch Break from every town in Monmouth County and from as far away as Ocean, Middlesex and Essex Counties. Our food pantry provides, on average, groceries to over 750 families every month. Six days a week, our volunteers deliver 30+ meals to the homebound. We have a clothing distribution center that includes our Suited for Success program which provides business attire for job interviews. We also have a Adopt-a-Family holiday toy program, a Children’s Cooking Class and a Gardener’s Market that is held every Tuesday morning, year round, and distributes fresh produce. We offer internet services, employment information, social-health and wellness resources.

31 years serving the community.

For over three decades, Lunch Break has operated from its current modest 6,000-square-foot building which is no longer sufficient to meet community demand and has reached its limitations both in size and suitability.Working beyond capacity and bursting at the seams, the stress of the current limited environment has an impact on the priceless human capital that is our staff, volunteers and clients. Due to a severe lack of space, Lunch Break is forced to rent off-site administrative offices and storage facilities in Red Bank and Shrewsbury costing the organization nearly $50,000 a year.
 

THE SOLUTION

The size, shape, and design of our new facility directly relates to the number of people we serve. After nearly 30 years in our current building, it’s time for a new home - a home that allows us to serve, with dignity and compassion, the thousands of people depending on us every month.  Please STEP UP TO THE PLATE for Lunch Break.
