Free Produce in Asbury Park on Friday for Those in Need
Time and time again this year, New Jersey has shown an incredible sense of community.
Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in March, local organizations have stepped up with food donations and drop-offs, and we are seeing that again now after Tropical Storm Isaias. My friend and coworker, Nicole Murray from our sister station, 94.3 the Point, spotted a tweet about free produce in Asbury Park.
If you lost your power from the Tropical Storm, and are in need of fresh produce, you can get some from Farmers Against Hunger this Friday at Springwood Park in Asbury Park from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm. The address is 126 Atkins Ave. Asbury Park, NJ 07712.
I love that the flyer said that IDs and registration aren't required, and no questions will be asked. This truly shows how Farmers Against Hunger are willing to go above and beyond to help those who are in need. You have the option to drive up or walk up to get the produce, but remember to wear a mask.
Nicole is always looking to highlight resources for those in need at the Jersey Shore. If you know of any that are helping those affected by Tropical Storm Isaias, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
