Since The Food Bank Network became incorporated in 1982, we have been made aware of other needs within our community, one being elderly shut-ins. For these folks, our Aid for Friends program was originated. Church groups and individuals prepare frozen meals at home, which are then delivered by volunteers on weekends to those who would not otherwise have a hot, nourishing meal.
We recently introduced a new program whereby individuals without prescriptive medication insurance may qualify (referral needed) to receive emergency assistance until other assistance can be provided.
On occasion, we are asked to network with other Social Service agencies to assist with helping families in preventing eviction and shutoff notices.
We coordinate with the United Way "Stuff the Bus" program each August and September to provide school supplies for qualifying high school students. Additionally, we supplement schools where supplies run low.
Basic hygiene products are supplied through the Working Wardrobe program and to individuals needing assistance.
In 2003, the Food Bank Network of Somerset County created the Pediatric Dental Program to assist low-income uninsured children throughout Somerset County. Click here for more information.
