MCFOODS, the Middlesex County Food Bank, is a network of over 130 food pantries, soup kitchens and social service providers. In 2019, they received over 2.2 million pounds of food that was distributed through our partners to food insecure residents including individuals, families, seniors, children, and veterans. During this unprecedented COVID-19 health crisis many more Middlesex County residents need help. MCFOODS Network has been working hard to get food to families in need, but the increased demand is clearing our shelves at an alarming rate. MCFOODS can accept donations of nonperishable foods or uncooked produce as well as personal hygiene items and paper products.
Why does MCFOODS need your help?
- 79% increase and 100% increase in March and April respectively in the amount of food received and distributed as compared to last year
- 39% increase in the number of pantries in our network accessing our services as compared to this time last year
Items Needed: Please help replenish our supply of food and ensure that all Middlesex County residents in need have access to nutritious foods and necessities; such as:
Canned chicken, meats, and pasta, cereal, macaroni & cheese, low sodium canned vegetables, canned fruits, rice, pasta, dry beans, diapers and wipes, paper products and soap, shampoo & toothpaste.(Canned and packaged goods only, NO glass items.)
