ASBURY PARK, N.J., Aug. 16, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Move For Hunger presents the Fourth Annual Surfside Food Drive and Concert Series to benefit the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. While hunger may not be on people's minds during the summer holidays, hunger takes no vacations. The summer months can be some of the most difficult for food banks and struggling families as children who receive subsidized lunches are home from school.

Area residents are urged to bring down non-perishable food items from September 1st to 3rd from 12 - 5 p.m. at the 4th Ave boardwalk in Asbury Park. The three-day event includes free performances by local artists right on the boardwalk from E Street Shuffle, Quincy Mumford & the Reason Why, Matt Wade, The Amboys and more. There will also be the 2nd annual Surfside CornholeTournament at Porta National Park as well as a free movie night on Saturday.

Anyone who donates non-perishable food items during the event will receive a free Surfside 2012 T-shirt and are entered into a raffle to win one of the ton of prizes from event sponsors. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to come down and enjoy the free music.

Any Shore resident can take part in the drive as Move For Hunger has partnered with over 20 beach clubs from Rumson to Normandy Beach to collect non-perishable food items all month long. Starting August 15, collection boxes will be conveniently placed at each participating beach club or business.

"The Surfside Food Drive is a great way for summer residents to clear out the kitchens and pantries of seasonal properties while making a difference for the less fortunate on the Jersey Shore," says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move For Hunger. "Last year over 3,500 lbs. was collected, enough to provide 2,692 meals to the needy in Monmouth and Ocean Counties."

Lowy's Moving Service, the local partner of Move For Hunger, has generously donated all the boxes for the food drive as well as transportation to deliver the food collections directly to the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
