Buy One, Bring One Program Supports Cty. Food Bank

Posted on April 15, 2021

Residents can help their neighbors in-need by purchasing an extra can of food during their routine grocery shopping, and donating it to “Buy One, Bring One” (BOBO) Fridays on April 16. Donations can be placed in the blue bins located in the breezeway of the Somerset County Administration Building in Somerville. If residents cannot donate on Friday, donations are accepted at the Administration Building on any non-holiday weekday throughout the year from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If traveling to the County Administration Building at 20 Grove Street in Somerville is inconvenient, residents can place canned goods in a plastic bag, write “FOOD” on the bag with a permanent marker, and leave it out with their regular curbside recycling. Click here for more information.

The Somerset County Recycling Division transports donations to the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, then items are distributed to clients of the Food Bank Network and other local food banks. Since 2010, BOBO Fridays has received more than 45 tons of donations. For more information about the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, visit www.somersetfoodbank.org.
