#withthisringyoullbefed Campaign to end hunger

Our Story

Sebastian and Jaclyn were engaged in December of 2018 with plans to be married at The Venetian on May 16th 2020.  Due to the coronavirus outbreak, their wedding, like so many others, has been postponed.   They’ve created the #WithThisRingYoullBeFed campaign to commemorate the day and raise funding and awareness for charity.

The Future Mr. & Mrs. Cina weren’t able to get married on the orginial date of May 16th, but rather than let the day pass, they’ve partnered with Fullfill NJ, formerly the Food Bank of Monmouth County, to raise money and awareness about the current hunger crisis their commuity is facing as an ancillary affect of the coronavirus.  Every dollar raised will provide 3 meals to someone in need!

The FoodBank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties is now Fulfill.  Our new name reflects the fact that today we focus on more than food distribution. It reflects our commitment to fulfill more of the needs of our neighbors and win the battle against hunger. It reflects our comprehensive approach that goes beyond providing food and helps those in need get to a place where they can get back on their feet for good. Ending hunger in our communities is a complex challenge, so Fulfill provides a full suite of programs to provide the resources people need to become self-sufficient.

Joseph Cusanelli & Melissa Dumansky

Joseph and Melissa both grew up in Brick, NJ. Their paths crossed when they were 21 and they happened to hang out by chance through a mutual friend they have shared over the years. Since that day, they have been inseparable ever since.   Joseph proposed to Melissa on May 6, 2016 at Island Beach State Park with a beautiful butterfly release surprise. They planned to wed this June 22, 2020 at a destination wedding in Key West. For concerns due to health and safety related to COVID-19, they decided to postpone their wedding to June 2021. Joseph and Melissa were moved by the story about Jaclyn Hockenjos and Sebastian Cina Jr., who provided an opportunity to make their original wedding day still memorable through a charity campaign #withthisringyoullbefed. They were so inspired that they wanted to join in on the campaign movement as well by starting a campaign for donations to their local charity on their originally planned wedding day as well. 

The mission of A Need We Feed is to prepare, package and deliver hot meals and create dining opportunities for our veterans, children, and their families who are in need.  We use the tools of our extensive food service background and personal history to create, what we consider, a normal lifestyle to those who are struggling in our community to do so.

Sydney & Dan

We are Sydney and Dan, and we were supposed to get married on August 29, 2020. We have postponed our wedding to next year out of caution for our loved ones. We met in West Hartford, CT where we were both working for the same healthcare company in different departments. A mutual friend held a happy hour celebrating his promotion, and we both attended and ended up chatting the whole night about our jobs, college and baseball! We ended up relocating to Philadelphia together and adopting our fur baby, Lenny in 2018. On the three year anniversary of our first date, Dan proposed!  On our original wedding date, we are honored to join the #WithThisRingYouWillBeFed campaign and collect canned goods and non-perishable food items for families in need in the Philadelphia community.

(DONATION LINK IN BIO) #Service and #giving have always been a core part of our program. Sebastian Cina, MSMC Men's Lacrosse Class of 2016, had to postpone his wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic, and he and his fiancee invoked our program philosophy of "roll with the punches" to use the day to help others in their community by staging a fundraiser and food drive. With nearly $10,000 and 600 lbs of food collected, their efforts will provide over 25,000 meals! A former team captain and Epitome Award winner, Cina is an amazing representation of our program values. Surround yourself with ELITE people and you are headed towards ELITE things! #withthisringyoullbefed ...
