While operating the B.E.A.T. Center (Bringing Everyone All Together), Fulfill (formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties) works with the JBJ Soul Kitchen and Peoples Pantry to alleviate hunger and build food security throughout both counties. On Monday, August 13, 2018, the OceanFirst Foundation added its support to the powerhouse trio, donating $100,000 to help Fulfill and its 300 partner agencies feed 131,000 Monmouth and Ocean County residents, including close to 40,000 children. On hand for the check presentation were from left to right OceanFirst Foundation Board Member and Fulfill Board of Trustee Member David Wintrode, Fulfill Executive Director Amy Jolin, OceanFirst Bank Executive Vice President & Chief Banking Officer and Fulfill Board of Trustee Member Joseph J. Lebel, III, and OceanFirst Foundation Executive Director Kathy Durante. For more information about Fulfill of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, visit fulfillnj.org.
