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.
Each year SCMFB awards a volunteer of the year to an individual that goes above and beyone with their efforts given to the food bank. This year we had the privilege of awarding Jerry Yoder our 2020 volunteer of the year award. Jerry has been a long volunteer of SCMFB and many other organizations and has given countless hours and time to the organization. Along with that, his wife Linda has given her support time and time again to SCMFB. Thank you Jerry and Linda for all you do!
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 Ben Tawney at 814-444-2509 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.
