The Somerset County Mobile Food Bank has made special arrangements to have its monthly deliveries to still be made during the coronavirus pandemic.
The food items will be pre-packaged eliminating the need for patrons to bring their own containers. The items will be given to people via a drive-thru format.
People who are temporarily without work and are in need of food are welcome. If you are not feeling well, the food bank encourages you to ask someone else to go to the food bank stop for you.
Members of qualified households can receive food at our next distribution this month at one of the following locations:
• Tuesday, May 26: 11 to 11:30 a.m. at Central City Recreation Park, 12:30 to 1 p.m. in the Berlin Brethen Church, 1:45 to 2:30 p.m. in the Meyersdale high school parking lot
• Wednesday, May 27: 12:45 to 1:15 p.m. in the North Star High School parking lot, 2 to 2:30 p.m. at St. Anne’s Church, Davidsville, 3:30 to 4 p.m. at Calvary United Methodist Church, Windber

The Somerset County Mobile Food Bank is a free food distribution intended to bring fresh produce and other items to those in Somerset County who have a limited income and a lack of or limited transportation.
The Somerset County Mobile Food Bank serves the communities of Berlin, Boswell, Central City, Confluence, Hollsopple, Meyersdale, Rockwood, Somerset and Windber.
The SCMFB doesn’t make home deliveries. However, we do offer a program for churches and organizations that would like to deliver boxes of food to disabled or elderly individuals in their area. The program serves those that have great difficulty picking up their own food.
Able bodied card holders and households with able bodied family members must pick up their food at one of our nine distribution sites.
Groups interested in becoming volunteers for the Homebound Program should send an email or call
Julie Stanton at 814-483-0126 for more information. Each group needs a minimum of two responsible individuals of record. Additional volunteers are strongly recommended to fill in or help deliver the boxes.
The fourth annual Somerset County Mobile Food Bank Sporting Clays Shoot on June 20 has been canceled because of the coronavirus concerns.
