The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, founded in 1984, serves over 270 pantries, soup kitchens and other feeding programs with over five million pounds of food annually.
With a new, state of the art warehouse and office complex completed in 2001, the FoodBank has seen an 84% increase in the number of individuals and families served since 2005.
Over 1,000 volunteers complement staff efforts to provide emergency food, skills training, outreach programs and advocacy for individuals and families in need.
Once the incredibly busy holiday season was over, the Executive Director, Susan M. Kelly, and Board Chairman, Robert Brown, engaged the Support Center to facilitate both a board retreat and a strategic planning process.[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="113" caption="Marie Zieger"][/caption]
Marie Zieger, Senior Affiliated Consultant, and Don Crocker, Chief Executive Officer, are looking forward to working with the FoodBank team over the next six months to draft a blueprint for the future.
