Fulfill (formerly The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties), provides access to nutritious food and resources to end hunger in our neighborhoods. Fulfill began in 1984 when three people saw hunger at the Jersey shore and decided to make a difference. They purchased a small, dilapidated warehouse in Spring Lake. After one year, Fulfill was serving 25 charities with 100,000 pounds of food. Today, Fulfill serves over 300 pantries, soup kitchens and other feeding programs with over twelve million pounds of food, including 2 million pounds of fresh produce, annually. Fulfill offers many hunger-ending resources including kids meals and backpack programs, mobile pantries, Culinary Training Program for people in need of better-paid jobs, Free Tax Prep and SNAP and Healthcare Enrollment assistance.
