Working Together, We Can End Hunger in Our Community

By Kim Guadagno

Kim Guadagno

Tonight in New Jersey, children will go to bed hungry. Contrary to popular notions about hunger in America, most are not homeless. In fact, most New Jersey families that struggle to put food on the table live in households that have at least one working adult.

In Monmouth County, where I live, and in neighboring Ocean County, one in ten residents don’t know where their next meal will come from, let alone whether if it will be nutritious. One in seven of those ten are children. The anxiety and fear of not knowing is what social services agencies call “food insecurity.”

That is why I am beginning a new chapter in my life this week: leading the effort to end hunger in our community as Chief Executive Officer of Fulfill, formerly the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Fulfill aims to not only help our neighbors experiencing food insecurity today, but to provide them with the resources to become self-sufficient for tomorrow. I am excited join a team of 50 employees and 1,400 volunteers whose mission is to “shorten the line” of those in our communities who are hungry.

The new chairman was supported the County’s legislative delegation and freeholders.   Sadeghi was supported by Gilmore.

Former Monmouth County GOP Executive Director Tom Szymanski managed Holman’s campaign.  Szymanski had a very good week.  He managed Rob Acerra’s winning campaign in Ocean Township too.
