Facing a mounting obstacle of more mouths to feed and a dearth of resources, the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties takes a bold new direction for ending hunger at the shore.

Executive Director Carlos Rodriguez, in his first initiative since assuming the position earlier this year, today outlined a multi-pronged approach that capitalizes on technology and relies on adaptability. The unveiling took place at the FoodBank’s headquarters in Neptune.

The FoodBank’s strategic plan includes:

  • Enabling the hundreds of food pantries in the FoodBank system to receive and store greater quantities of food.
  • Expedite the transfer of nutritious items from food pantries and soup kitchens to people who most urgently need them.
  • Reinforcing the donation stream by tapping new sources of food and money.
  • Establishing a web-based ordering system.

The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties transfers donations from manufacturers, farmers, retailers, private citizens and the U.S Department of Agriculture to food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, domestic abuse victims, daycare centers, afterschool programs and youth shelters.
