We have everything we need, but many others do not.

We wanted to give back!


So we decided with our years of food service experience to organize a drive to serve a hot meal to those 1st responders, police, and military who are making their own sacrifices helping us here rebuild.


This is bigger than us.

The needs of many out weighs the needs of one.

Thanksgiving 2012 after Hurricane Sandy


Restore the Shore: 1st Responders began November 2012

Thankful for the sacrifices many have made during and after Hurricane Sandy, there was an open house on Thanksgiving for those helping to Restore the Shore.


We invited all of those from out of the area who are here working in some capacity, to come to the Baker's for a Thanksgiving dinner.


On Thanksgiving, we served about 350 meals to those who could come to us and delivered meals to all of those continuing to work through the day. Please visit our page of pictures and thanks for the details.


Restore the Shore: 1st Responders Christmas 2012

Thankful for the sacrifices many have made and continue to make because of Hurricane Sandy, we will be serving meals on Christmas Day to those helping to Restore the Shore and those displaced by the super storm.


To celebrate Christmas, we will be delivering 600 meals to emergency personnel, 1st response workers and displaced families (as well as one gift for each child) to the Mantaloking, Brick, Ortley, and Seaside areas.
