With Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon, Red Bank’s Lunch Break is gearing up to make the holidays special for families in our area. And the current economic climate means more families than ever will need Lunch Break’s help, according to Gwen Love, the soup kitchen and social services nonprofit’s executive director.
In the past 30 days alone, the Lunch Break pantry has served 820 families. “That is a Lunch Break record,” says Love.
“We’ve just started giving out our holiday food bags last week,” says chef Tyrone Burr, “In one week we gave out 365 holiday bags. That’s three times as many as last year.”
Piehole stopped in at Lunch Break to see what neighbors around the Green could do to — as Love puts it — “share their blessings.”
