LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, NJ – Franco & Moran for Little Egg Harbor Twp. Committee issued a joint statement calling on the LEH Twp. Committee to satisfy Fulfill NJ’s request that all Ocean and Monmouth County municipalities pass proclamations designating September as “Hunger Action Month,” calling on the LEH Twp. Committee to pass such a proclamation. According to Fulfill NJ, Point Pleasant Borough, Aberdeen, and Wall Twp. have already passed proclamations.
“We have seen some of the realities that families suffering from food insecurity must live with,” said Shaun Moran. “Our most vulnerable community members, those struggling to keep food on the table during the economic downturn caused by the pandemic, deserve as much support as the Little Egg Harbor Twp. Committee can muster.”
“I grew up in poverty and know first-hand what it’s like to go hungry. It’s part of why I will always advocate for the less-fortunate, and now is no different,” said Gabriel Franco. “I think the Township’s support on this could go a long way in promoting awareness and encouraging others to volunteer and get involved.”
The Little Egg Harbor Food Pantry is serviced in part by Fulfill NJ. Franco & Moran’s statement in support of a municipal proclamation that would declare September as “Hunger Action Month” can be found here, along with information on how to volunteer for the Little Egg Harbor Food Pantry.
