SOMERSET COUNTY, NJ - Somerset County is holding the next “Buy One, Bring One” collection of food for those in need Aug. 21.

The collection is for Somerset County families and individuals in need.

“Demand at the Food Bank Network is still high, especially during the summer months when there are no school lunch programs or holiday food drives,” Somerset County Freeholder Deputy Director Patricia Walsh, who spearheads the program, said in a release. “You can help by donating canned or boxed items at any of the county, municipal or library locations that host BOBO Fridays bins.”
