Kim Guadagno, New Jersey’s first lieutenant governor and CEO and president of Fulfill, said she will be asking for support from business and community leaders to help end hunger in New Jersey.
Fulfill, formerly known as the Food Bank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties, provides 13.2 million meals annually through a network of more than 300 food pantries and soup kitchens. The organization also assists those in need with job training, finding access to health insurance and services to help eliminate food insecurity.
“In the coming months, it is my goal to reach every corner of Monmouth and Ocean counties to raise awareness of hunger in our own backyard and of the services Fulfill provides,” Guadagno wrote in an op-ed released to media outlets this week. “If you are a business or community leader in our area, don’t be surprised if I reach out to you for support for the important work Fulfill has undertaken.”
