The Bound Brook Presbyterian Church’s Mission and Outreach Commission is using its funds in their “Love Local” program. They have organized volunteers to deliver school lunches to families in Bound Brook selected by the school administration, who would normally receive free or reduced price meals at school.. These deliveries are made 3 times a week to the families, while the schools are closed for the Covid-19 pandemic. The Love Local program also buys Shop-Rite gift cards to include with the food deliveries.
The program started with 30 families, but the program has expanded to many more, and includes serving families in Middlesex Borough, the Somerset County food pantry, and from the Casa Del Banquete congregation that worships in their building. In fact, many more folks have asked for assistance since the beginning of this program, and the Presbyterian Women’s group has increased their donation to help meet the much increased requests. Those wishing to send donations to aid them in their efforts can send their funds to: Love Local, Bound Brook Presbyterian Church, 409 Mountain Avenue, Bound Brook, N.J. 08806.
