From NJ native and chef James Avery, Farmly is a new restaurant in Sea Girt serving convenient, high quality meats and home-style sides, meant to be enjoyed in or taken home. #HipNJ has the scoop on this brand new eatery!

Farmly Neighborhood Kitchen was founded in 2018 by chef James Avery to bring nourishing food from “farm to family” with soulful home cooking in between. Serving slow-cooked meats, home-style sides and options for every diet, they aim to raise the bar in every area of dining.

All of Farmly’s food is prepared thoughtfully by chefs with premium and purposeful ingredients from farmers who share their values of wholesomeness and authenticity.

Michael Frungillo of Gourmet Dining on Food Waste

Michael Frungillo, President of Gourmet Dining, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss preventing food waste and food insecurity.

Frungillo tells Abudato that 40% of the food produced in this country is thrown in the garage. “That’s an astonishing fact,” he says.

He discusses how Gourmet Dining has partnered with many local vendors within the regional communities they serve to address the issues of food insecurity and food waste.

Gourmet Dining is the premier food service company serving New Jersey. As New Jersey’s largest regional dining service company, Gourmet Dining operates on-site food service management for educational, corporate, healthcare and long term care throughout the state.
