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 ten 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.
