RED BANK, NJ — Aug. 30, 2021 — Lunch Break has been selected as a charity partner for ACME to receive donations from its annual Nourishing Neighbors campaign to ensure every child has access to a healthy breakfast. All donations made at the Fair Haven, Lincroft and Little Silver ACME stores will be used to support Lunch Break’s mission of providing food, clothing, fellowship and life skills to those in need in Monmouth County and beyond.

“Young minds and bodies need a healthy breakfast to start their day,” said Executive Director Gwendolyn Love. “Now more than ever, fighting hunger is an imperative in our community. We are delighted to be the charity partner for the Fair Haven, Lincroft and Little Silver ACME stores and thank ACME Markets Foundation for its dedication to ensuring that no child has to start their day hungry.”

Lunch Break has been providing social services and food to financially struggling families and individuals for the past 38 years, since its inception in 1983 by the late Norma Todd and local community leaders. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization has kept its doors open and continues to offer grab-and-go meals and groceries six days a week, clothing (at needs basis) and other social services and modified programs.

Nourishing Neighbors, a charitable program of the ACME Markets Foundation, is working to eradicate childhood hunger in America. With 1 in 4 children in America not knowing where their next meal will come from, the funds raised in September will be dedicated to local efforts that ensure every child has access to a healthy breakfast.

Those wishing to support Lunch Break through this program can simply go to the Fair Haven, Lincroft or Little Silver ACME stores and make a donation to the Nourishing Neighbors program at checkout September 1-30.
