Mission Statement

At Feeding Our Heroes, we feel it is the responsibility of the community to collaboratively end food insecurity for New Jersey's veterans and to keep our first responders strong during times of crisis.

Our Story

Starting in 2005 with a simple idea of restoring a local food institution, Feeding Our Heroes founder Michael Giunta purchased Bayway Diner. After receiving national recognition by airing on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, Bayway Diner expanded into Bayway Catering.  Now occupying a corporate cafeteria and serving 900+ workers each day, Bayway Catering realized the opportunity to give back to those who serve us in times of need by starting NJ food charity, Feeding Our Heroes.

Since its inception in 2021, Feeding Our Heroes has fed thousands of veterans using several different programs that have supported first responders through disaster relief. We celebrate our local heroes, salute our military personnel and veterans, and improve awareness around food insecurity in the community.

Serving Our Heroes

We all rely on veterans to be heroes when they are serving us in times of need. It is our mission to make sure when they return home to the land they protect, they still feel like the true heroes they are. No veteran, essential worker, or first responder should ever be without food.
