Food Brings Hope was thrilled to host an End of the Year Celebration for students enrolled in our afterschool programs, KidsZone and TeenZone. The event took place at the Jackie Robinson Ballpark where we invited our students, sponsors, and school representatives to eat, receive awards, and watch the Tortugas defeat the Jupiter Hammerheads. In addition, Drew Maider, owner of four local Jersey Mike’s locations, and managers also attended to be recognized as Business Partner of the Month. With their help during this year’s JM’s Day of Giving event, more than $30,000 was raised to benefit the children of FBH.
Tortugas General Manager, Jim Jaworski, recognized Food Brings Hope as the Community Hero of the night’s game. Nina Samuels, FBHonors student at Mainland HS, was chosen to throw out the first pitch.
