An Asbury Park eatery helped families in need on Sunday by providing healthy-cooked meals.
MacroBites prepared 600 meals for families to pick up. People who also stopped by could pick up some handwarmers and already-prepared chicken rice and broccoli dishes.
“We believe that food is a right not a privilege,” said Macrobites owner David Lewis. “If you look at the numbers on waste, like there's tons of food is thrown away and then there's hungry people right around here that don't have enough money, so you know when we're in a position and we can we like to give back in as possible.”
Lewis added they will be providing the meals through Dec. 31.
Macrobites also partnered with Food Not Bombs -- a local organization providing hot meals, canned goods and coats – to those in need outside of the Asbury Park Station.
