Did you enjoy your summer? Living and lounging by the beach in Monmouth County might make you forget about others in our area who are desperately in need and feeling the pangs of hunger. Summer is a season of hunger for children who don't receive the food they normally receive during the school year. One in every ten people in Monmouth and Ocean Counties receive emergency food from the FoodBank’s network of pantries, soup kitchens and other agencies. The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties teamed-up with Sabrett and WindMill Hot Dogs to raise money to provide food for those in our communities who don’t have enough to eat. The 10,000 Hot Dog campaign ran through Labor Day. Each $5.00 donation would deliver 15 meals and hope to struggling families. Additionally, Sabrett matched contributions to the project, donating up to 10,000 hot dogs. The fundraiser kicked off right before Memorial Day with Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes playing a concert on the roof deck of the WindMill in West End. The 10,000 Hot Dog campaign ended Labor Day. In this follow-up visit with Rena Levine Levy of the Windmill and Peter Grote of the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, we’ll get the results of this ambitious campaign and learn more about other initiatives from the Foodbank to eradicate hunger in our area.
