The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties
November 25, 2010
Our children of the Keansburg Schools have been the beneficiaries of the generosity of the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties "BackPack Program" since May 2008. Through the food distribution program, children have received weekly backpacks of food that carry them through the weekend, thus ensuring that they have nutritious food when not in school.
Some of our families are struggling to make ends meet and repeatedly share with us that this weekly gift of food for their children is invaluable.
Our school team works to identify children that could benefit from the program and we have grown from 30 backpacks distributed to almost 60!. It indicates the growing need for us to work closely with families to support them in their time of need.
