NEPTUNE CITY, N.J. — Gym. Tan. Nourishment.
While the world continues to ride the wave of distress and uncertainty in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, one Jersey Shore alum is stepping up to the plate to help those on the front lines get the nutrition they need to keep the powerhouse that is the medical personnel at a hospital within the Hackensack Meridian Health network staying healthy and strong.
This past week, Jenni Farley, who many know as “JWoww” from MTV's hit reality show Jersey Shore, teamed up with fellow Eat Clean Bro representative, Founder Jamie Giovinazzo to donate 500 prepared meals to all departments of the Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune City. Eat Clean Bro is a delivery restaurant in Freehold Township that services 17 eastern and southern states to bring delicious and nutritious chef-prepared meals conveniently to your door. The gesture was aimed at showing their gratitude to all the hospital staff who are working tirelessly and risking their own lives to nurse those infected with the potentially deadly novel coronavirus (COVID-19) back to health.
“I wanted to do something to help during this time, since hospitals are our front line, and they are forced to be in harm's way to protect everyone else,” said Farley. “I wanted to help them directly to show appreciation for them, so they know we are truly thinking of them during these very difficult times for everybody.”
As of Sunday, there are more than 13,000 reported cases of COVID-19 in New Jersey and 161 deaths.
“There are a lot of people affected by this crisis,” said Giovinazzo. “I just thought it would be nice to thank the people who risk their own safety, and their family’s safety, to help keep all of us healthy and safe.”
Eat Clean Bro’s menu is expansive, with a bevy of palatable, wholesome options packed with protein. Dishes range from The Situation (named for Jersey Shore’s Mike Sorrentino): grilled lemon-herb chicken and cajun shrimp served with steamed broccoli over a bed of protein noodles tossed with a low-fat Francaise sauce to the Anthony Ashnault, named for the freestyle wrestler: roasted salmon filet served over orzo pasta, topped with Picatta sauce and served with a side of steamed asparagus.
Delivery is free for customers living within a 15-mile radius of the Freehold location, and loyal customers can earn bonus points for every meal they purchase. ($1 per point; $100 points equates to a $3 credit.)
