Springsteen offers his ‘hungry heart’ to NJ residents in need
“Remember, nobody wins unless everybody wins.”
During his Born in the USA Tour in 1984-85, Bruce Springsteen repeated this phrase often, asking everyone to bring canned goods to his concerts to be distributed to local food banks.
He can be heard saying this at the beginning of his live 1987 video for “Born to Run.” The Boss reiterated that same phrase in 2009 when he introduced the Stephen Foster song, “Hard Times,” at Giants Stadium on Sept. 30.
Now, in 2022, Springsteen is helping the hungry again.
Fulfill (formerly the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties) is selling a T-shirt with the famous Springsteen quote imprinted on it.
With each purchase, more than 50 meals will be made available to those in need, according to its website.
The T-shirt is a unisex short sleeve crew in the color sand. The powerful Springsteen phrase is on the front with the Fulfill logo on the back. The cost is $40 which includes shipping.
There is also a racerback tank top available for purchase. Also $40 each, these tanks are silver in color with the iconic Springsteen quote on the front and the Fulfill logo on the back.
Orders can be placed online and the shirts usually ship in 5 to 7 days.
Fulfill’s mission is not only to end hunger, but to build food security in both Monmouth and Ocean counties, and to make sure all people at all times have access to enough nutritious food for a healthy, active lifestyle.
