Buy One Bring One Food Drive June 16th

Posted on June 9, 2017

Freeholder Patricia Walsh has announced that the next “Buy One, Bring One” (BOBO) collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, June 16.

“This month’s BOBO Fridays collection is part of our annual Curbing Hunger Month food drive in Somerset County,” said Freeholder Walsh. “If you miss putting out canned-food donations at the curb on your recycling pickup day, you can drop off an item or two at the nearest BOBO Fridays bin.”

Look for the blue BOBO Fridays bins at these county locations: Somerset County Administration Building, 20 Grove St., Somerville; Park Commission Headquarters, 355 Milltown Road, Bridgewater; and Lord Stirling Stable, 256 S. Maple Ave., Basking Ridge.

Local libraries hosting the bins include the Bound Brook Memorial Library, Bridgewater Library, Manville Library, Mary Jacobs Memorial Library (Rocky Hill), North Plainfield Library, Peapack-Gladstone Library, Somerville Public Library, Warren Township Library and Watchung Library.

Towns that have BOBO Fridays bins in their municipal buildings are Bedminster, Bound Brook, Franklin, Green Brook, North Plainfield and Raritan.

Canned or boxed food items are accepted. For examples of healthy foods to donate, visit
