CHILDHOOD HUNGER DAY
This year, 125 children from 6 elementary school classes, representing school districts in both Monmouth & Ocean counties, participated in the Childhood Hunger Day Forum at the FoodBank on October 16th. The event was organized by the American Culinary Federation Jersey Shore Chefs Association.
For the past 20 years, the chefs of the Jersey Shore have held an educational forum for local kids to learn more about nutrition, childhood hunger and obesity. The event included neighborhood schools, with national support from the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Chef & Child Foundation, a philanthropic group whose mission is to help fight childhood hunger.
