SOMERSET COUNTY, NJ - The next "Buy One, Bring One" collection of food for Somerset County families is being held June 20, and is part of the 20th annual Curbing Hunger Month throughout the county.
During the month of June, residents are asked to put canned food donations in plastic bags at the curb on their recycling days.
"Employees and visitors to various county, municipal and library locations also can donate by dropping off non-perishables in any of the blue BOBO Fridays bins," said Somerset County Freeholder Patricia Walsh.
According to a release from the county, canned or boxed food items are also being accepted. Anyone looking for ideas about healthy food to donate can visit http://bit.ly/FoodPantryDonations.
There is also an opportunity to donate online by visiting www.CurbingHunger2014.org.
There are also blue BOBO Fridays bins at several county locations: Somerset County Administration Building, on Grove Street in Somerville; Park Commission Headquarters, on Milltown Road in Bridgewater; Lord Stirling Stable, on South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge; and Environmental Education Center, on Lord Stirling Road in Basking Ridge.
