The Free Meal Center is a secular non-profit charitable organization operated by five Board of Director members and a network of compassionate volunteers and funded by donations and grants.
Our mission is to provide nutritious free on-site meals in Cape May County New Jersey to anyone who walks through our doors in a manner that preserves and enhances the dignity of each individual. Volunteers and organizations may offer information and advice concerning finances housing health and nutrition and job and career needs to willful participants.
Food Meals The Free Meal Center fell short of its goal of raising $50000 by March 31st so the owner has forced us to vacate the premises as of April 1st. It\'s not the end of our journey. Updated October 9th 2012
Our plan now is to wait for our benefactor to come into their funds then submit a new offer on the 2.36 acre property with the 4275 square foot building. Since the property was on the market many years before we came along we fully expect it to be available for us to purchase once our full funding arrives. Our benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous has pledged to pay the entire cost of the property - about $300000 - and then fund the renovations.
While we wait TFMC will continue to hold fundraisers and the Board of Directors will continue to meet and make plans. Our employee will still be working five days a week out of our office at 5606 New Jersey Avenue in Wildwood Crest. Our phone number there is 609-522-5733.
