Update: Some Relief for Ocean County Hunger Relief

Ocean County Hunger Relief will not be thrown out of a warehouse it currently occupies for its food bank and thrift shop on Germania Station Road in Toms River, despite the property recently being sold, according to the non-profit’s Executive Director Carol Latif.

However, Latif said while the new owners will allow them to continue using a portion of the building, they’ll have to pay higher rent and downsize significantly, “So we’re going to have to start a huge liquidation sale at our warehouse to downsize dramatically,” she said.

Ocean County Hunger Relief plans on starting a fund to keep going and Latif said she needs the support of the community for the organization’s future home. She said, “We’re not going to give up. We’re not going to give in, but we’re not going to be thrown out.”

Latif said Ocean County Hunger Relief is looking for its new future home in the Toms River area, but will still be able to service the community as best it can from the warehouse. Latif said there is no limit on the amount of time the organization is allowed to rent the space at the warehouse, as far as she is aware. “We’re still negotiating” she added.
