Lunch Break was founded in 1983 and seeks to alleviate hunger and lead those they serve to healthier lifestyles. The organization provides life’s basic necessities, such as food, clothing and fellowship for community members in need.

Lunch Break Board Member Rick Brandt finds this event to be one of his favorites.

“Lunch Break’s ‘Taste of Summer’ event will have some of the best food the Jersey Shore has to offer,” he said. “This event will be a lot of fun and benefits those who battle hunger in our community.”
