Louis Armour - Founder of Meal at Noon Leaves a Legacy of Caring

We recognize the legacy of Louis Armour who passed away on March 9, 2015 after dedicating many years of his life to serving his country and Monmouth County. He was the Director of the Board of Social Services. Close to his heart was the founding of Meal at Noon one of our local partner programs. He and his wife of 48 years, Barbara, started Meal at Noon in 1997.  They have been strong supporters of our CROP Hunger Walk. Meal at Noon is located in the Second Baptist Church on Liberty Street in Long Branch. It opens its doors every Saturday offering hot meals, and provides bagged lunches on Wednesdays.  

Director, Byron Griffin, worked with Lou for many years and has taken over the operation of this volunteer program. They get their food from the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean County and volunteers from area churches donate their time to serve the meals. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Meal at Noon as we walk this year for our 35th hunger walk to end hunger for families everywhere!
