As we won't be at Red Bank Regional High School this year due to the global pandemic and Covid-19, we're asking individuals and groups to do their own food collection. We hope families, neighborhoods, schools, faith groups, and civic groups will all do food collections and donate to one of our 15 local partner programs or the two dozen food pantries we normally support in Monmouth County.
Even though food collections may be smaller and more individualized, we still hope to tally the amount of pounds of food collected and donated. We need to do as much as we can to support the two dozen Monmouth County Food Pantries that came last year to pick up 16,000 lbs. of food. They count on us to help keep thier shelves filled.
Take photos of your food collections no matter the size. Post photos on your social media using the hashtag #redbankcropwalk2020
Please email your totals to firstname.lastname@example.org
Walkers from out 39th CROP Walk in 2019 donated 16,000 lbs. of peanut butter, rice, beans and soup! These items help to fill the shelves at nearly two dozen Monmouth County food pantries. 2019 was the largest amount ever collected by our CROP Walk. All the food items were collected, sorted, and distributed within a few hours thanks to the help of students from Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft.
Our past food collections have been run by committee volunteers, Vicky Smith and Joe Lotito the past few years. We hope to see them onboard again in 2021.
