Lydia Saltzbart, teen committee member from Freehold Township High School and Janie Schildge, CROP coordinator visited Meal at on a Saturday this summer. Meal at is one of our ecumenical local partner programs. Lou Armour oversees this at the SecondAve.BaptistChurch on Liberty Street in Long Branch. Long Branch area church teams take turns every Saturday (except 1st two weeks of August) serving a delicious prepared hot meal purchased from the Monmouth-Ocean Food Bank. A salad is added and dessert and 50-60 people go away well fed and cared for. Set up outside the church was a clothing giveaway, and other items for clients to take home. Meal at also provides a bag lunch on Wednesdays. Lou and his wife, Barbara, have worked for many years helping those who need a boost. Thank you to the Armours and supporting faith groups for Meal at .

Red Bank CROP Walk is the most active and successful CROP Hunger Walk in the NJ/NY region. It had its start in 1981 and has grown to include many communities throughout Monmouth County. Red Bank is the 6th largest (of over 800) CROP Hunger Walks in the country. Together we take a stand against hunger in our world by raising funds to support 15 local partner programs and national/global programs through Church World Service.
Janie Schildge - Walk Coordinator
We have an adult coordinating committee and a teen leaders committee with student representatives from area high schools. Both committees work to increase awareness and increase participation in our hunger walk.
We welcome you to join our circle of caring. Volunteers, sponsors, walkers, donors...all are welcome to walk with us to end hunger.
