1/21/2022 - BOBO Fridays Continue January 21, 2022 and Throughout the Year
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 Jan. 21 and any non-holiday weekday.

Donation Locations
Canned food can be placed in the blue bins found in the breezeway of the Somerset County Administration Building, located at 20 Grove St., 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. For a list of other drop-off locations, visit BOBODropOff.

Other Easy Ways to Donate
If traveling to the County Administration Building 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.

The Somerset County Recycling Division transports donations to the Food Bank Network of Somerset County. Since 2010, BOBO Fridays has received more than 46 tons of donations. For more information about the Food Bank Network of Somerset County, visit
