Lunch Break Mission Statement
As a caring community, Lunch Break freely provides food, clothing, life skills and fellowship to those in need in Monmouth County and beyond.
We strive to break the cycle of poverty for those we serve and guide our community members in need to self-sufficiency and healthier, more productive lifestyles.
We serve everyone with compassion and dignity.
Consider donating a leaf or fruit to The Giving Tree. Bronze, silver, gold leaves and apples can be inscribed with names of special supporters like you. Your donation to the tree is a wonderful way to recognize your company, school or group, honor a friend or family member, celebrate a family member (graduate, birthday, anniversary, children, grandchildren, spouse, parent, pets) or remember departed loves ones. In addition to supporting the more than 73,000 hot meals served annually, your donation benefits the social service programs we offer including children’s cooking classes, men’s and women’s mentorship, clothing distribution and Suit Up, special holiday meals and homebound meal deliveries, among others. Give local and watch us grow. Contact Jill Govel-Gwydir jgwydir@
