Community Ministry

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.  

About Us 

The Somerset County Mobile Food Bank is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that consists of a group of volunteers gathered together to provide food for the people in Somerset County.  We are not attempting to take the place of other Food distributions already in place. We invite you to get involved with your local area food banks and food pantries. The food, they provide during their regular schedules and the holidays, helps to ensure that people do not go hungry during the year. That is, as long as people have transportation to these services. 

Through experience and resident communications, we discovered a need that many people have no means to get to these services on a regular basis. Therefore, to meet that need, the Somerset County Mobile Food Bank was developed. 

Our Mission 

To assist in providing access to food resources to meet the needs of our neighbors in Somerset County, using a system with central and mobile food distribution means. The system is intended to be collaborative with local food pantries and to augment their efforts to maximize available food resources.  The system also seeks to involve local food producers by using their donated food or food they may sell to program partners in the distribution system.
