OceanFirst to Donate $10,000 to Support Bridgeton Summer Feeding Program

Last Edited:

OceanFirst Foundation will present a check for $10,000 to Gateway Community Action Partnership to support Gateway’s Healthy Food Express — Bridgeton’s Mobile Feeding Bus at Gateway on August 24th, at 11 a.m.

Along with the check presentation, Gateway will also hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially launch the summer feeding program of the Healthy Food Express.

This summer feeding program is aimed at plugging the food insecurity gap when children are out of school during the summer months.

When schools close in the summer months and during winter and spring break periods, many of the county’s neediest children are left without enough food to eat.

The Health Food Express summer feeding program will bring healthy, nutritious meals to these children. 

These meals will be delivered to congregate feeding sites such as churches, schools and civic buildings. In instances where no facilities are available, children will be permitted to eat their meals aboard the bus or on outside tables and chairs.
