On Friday, August 9, we were honored to attend the Victory Garden dedication at American Legion Post 129. This garden is a true labor of love and will positively impact our veteran community by growing and offering our veterans free and nutritious food options that will improve their health and reduce the risk of chronic disease. The harvest from the garden will help supply the food pantry at Ocean County College for our veterans.

This was also a wonderful collaborative effort with partners including FulfillToms River Family Health & Support CoalitionOcean County College, Makers Club, Boy Scouts of America, Jersey Shore CouncilOcean County YMCAAmerican Legion Post 129 Legionnaires, The Riders, The Sons of the American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary.
