BOBO Fridays Food Drive Continues on July 16


SOMERVILLE, NJ – Residents can help their neighbors in-need by purchasing an extra can of food during their routine trip to the grocery store, and donating it to “Buy One, Bring One” (BOBO) Fridays on July 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 throughout the year on any non-holiday weekday 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. For more information, visit

The Somerset County Recycling Division transports donations to the Food Bank Network of Somerset County. Since 2010, BOBO Fridays has received more than 45 tons of donations. For more information about the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, visit
