Since Ocean County College has moved to online classes, the Dining Hall and other eateries on campus are stuck with an overabundance of food.

OCC released a statement saying that they would take all perishable food items on campus and donate them to The B.E.A.T. Center of Ocean County.

The BEAT Center was opened in 2016 as a joint effort by Fulfill, the Peoples Pantry, and the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation.

Kenneth Malagiere, Executive Director of the OCC Foundation, said, “Our Foundation, and entire college community, remain committed to serving our students and broader community though this challenge and into our collective recovery.”
