ASBURY PARK, NJ - Beginning Wednesday, January 10, 2018 the Hotel Tides will be hosting a food drive to benefit Fulfill (formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties). The drive will run for two weeks, ending on Wednesday, January 24, 2018.
In 2016, Fulfill provided over 12 million meals through over 300 pantries and soup kitchens.
Most needed items include; canned tuna, chicken or salmon (in water), canned vegetables, brown, wild or white rice, peanut butter & jelly, pasta, canned beans, lentils or peas, unsalted nuts and more. Items may be dropped off Wednesday-Sunday from the hours of 5pm-11pm at the Hotel Tides. The hotel is located at 408 7th Ave., Asbury Park.
"Last year we were able to donate 175lbs. of food from our drive. This year we hope to surpass that. It has become a lasting tradition of ours to be a part of this community, give back in anyway we can, and encourage others to do the same" Ryan Jimenez, General Manager, of the Hotel Tides, said.
