1 out of 6 children in New Jersey struggles with hunger. The rates of food insecure children are higher in South Jersey than in all other areas of the state. The Hunger Foundation of Southern Ocean, with the support of our community, aims to end hunger in Southern Ocean County.
The average meal cost in Ocean County is $3.11. A single donation makes a huge impact. If you cannot make it to one of our events or volunteer, you can donate right here online. We appreciate you joining us in the fight against hunger! Every penny counts.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
With the help and support of local businesses and volunteers, we created a community garden that promotes involvement and increases awareness about the ever-growing need for hunger relief right here in our backyards.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
There are so many ways to help stop hunger in Southern Ocean County. You can help by volunteering, attending our events, donating online, and supporting our local business partners. Together, we can end childhood hunger one plate at a time.
