Thirty-seven years ago in March 1983, Lunch Break of Red Bank opened its doors to feed the community’s homeless, hungry and financially challenged individuals. At that time, the agency helped just a small amount of people. Lunch Break has grown since then and, as of 2018, in Monmouth County, served more than 80,000 hot meals (annually) and assisted more than 2,000 families in the Client Choice Pantry. Clothing pickups now number more than 40,000!
