COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECTS
As our name implies, if there is a need, we will feed. That's why we work in conjunction with other community organizations to help provide meals to those in need. Below are some of our outreach projects.
Monthly Mystery Family Style Meal for the Family Success Center
For this monthly program we ask our local chefs to receive mystery food items from the Fulfil Food Pantry. Once they have their ingredients, we ask them to prepare a family style meal with a simple recipe the families can then make on their own.
Once it is prepared and hot, we deliver this meal to the Family Success Center in Asbury. Family Success Center uses this meal to teach their members the importance of a healthy meal and spending quality family time together. During this time, the parents are taught how to communicate with their children with the goal of reuniting as a family.
We are very thankful for this opportunity in bringing a family back together.
We participate in the Code Blue State of Emergency Alert System by purchasing food from Cafe Italia and having it delivered to the Beat The Streets Emergency warming shelter.
Meal & Mentor Program
A Need We Feed partners with local restaurants like Capone's and Mulligan's for a discounted after school meal.
On Tuesdays, we deliver our meals to the Walnut St. school and Hugh J. Boyd schools who are then mentored with their Bigs from the BBBS.
On Wednesdays to the children at the South Toms River Recreation Center who are mentored by Rob Taylor, Coach Kearney, and the Donovan boys basketball team
