The annual Central Jersey RV Show and Food Drive is anticipating strong attendance that organizers feel is on track to break last year’s record crowd and food donations.
According to a press release, the show will run May 3-5 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel N.J., an will feature a broad selection of towable and motorized RVs. Admission is free with a nonperishable food donation for Fulfill, formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean County.
Organizers reported that this year’s goal is to exceed 7,000 pounds of non-perishable food donations in lieu of admission.
“For over 26 years we have had the pleasure of leading this initiative to aid the Foodbank. This team effort between business and the RV community is a truly rewarding experience,” stated Walter Hynes, general manager of Scott Motor Coach RV Center of Lakewood. “The need is great and donations of non-perishable food items go a long way.”
The food will be sorted and distributed throughout the Fullfill’s network of food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs in the community. Programs such as Child Nutrition, Senior Food Programs, Nutrition Education and a Mobile Food Pantry are just some of the services that the Foodbank provides.
