Move For Hunger and Locals Unite
to Rebuild & Recover the Jersey Coast
Red Bank – New Jersey-based non-profit Move For Hunger and a dedicated group of locals banned together to form Rebuild & Recover, a grassroots movement dedicated to relieving Hurricane Sandy victims and coastal towns in need. All residents of surrounding towns are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items and cleaning supplies to 21 East Front Street in Red Bank through November 6*.
“We are restoring, rebuilding, and recovering the communities that are so dear to our hearts by getting donations directly to those in need”, says Rebuild & Recover pioneer Anthony Setaro of Red Bank.
“With the compounded issues of gas and water shortages with oncoming winter weather, it is critical we come together as a community right now”, says Move For Hunger’s Ashley George of West Long Branch. “We’re depending on the whole community to help neighbors in need. We are in this for the long haul together.”

*After November 6, donors are encouraged to drop off at locations including the Salvation Army, the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties in Neptune, and local food pantries. Please call ahead first to coordinate specific donations those organizations are in need of at that time.
