The mission of The Food Bank Network is to distribute food and to provide other basic human needs to those less fortunate in our community in a manner which recognizes and advances self worth and human dignity. Our method of distributing this food is through three food pantries, located in Somerville, Bound Brook, and North Plainfield, and a warehouse in Bridgewater.
On a daily basis, we take emergency calls from people who need our help and are unable to wait until our Saturday pantry distribution. Usually, they are first-time people or people with special needs. We also take walk-ins of people needing immediate help. Our goal is to help create the opportunity for each person to become self-sufficient.

How To Donate
The Food Bank Network of Somerset County is incorporated as a charitable, not-for-profit organization. The majority of our food and funding are donations provided by individuals, families, philanthropic organizations, businesses and corporations of all sizes.
Many area churches and synagogues organize weekly or monthly food drives to collect food for our program. If your faith community or office or civic group is interested in conducting a food drive, please contact the Executive Director for information on organizing one. Your individual contribution of food or money is greatly appreciated.
