Annual Curbing Hunger Month Dood Drive

AAA - 6/1/2017 9:00:00 AM

You can help “curb hunger” in your community!

Freeholder Director Peter S. Palmer has announced that the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the county Recycling Center, county and municipal public works crews, the Food Bank Network of Somerset County and Curbing Hunger Inc. are conducting the 23rd Annual Curbing Hunger Month food drive throughout Somerset County.

Orange plastic bags are distributed to all households in May – look for one tied to the handle of your recycling bucket.  Or, you can use any plastic grocery bag – just mark it with the word “Food.”

Please place canned food donations in the bags and leave them at the curb on your regularly scheduled recycling collection days from June 5-30. This gives every household two opportunities to donate. The food is distributed to the Food Bank Network and to other food pantries in the county.

Green Team - 5/23/2017 2:29:00 PM

Even with snow on the ground in 2016, the Bernardsville Community Garden remained active and nearly doubled in size for 2017.  The drip irrigation is turned on for the season, and garden members have already planted a variety of organic vegetables, such as garden peas and tomato's. In the coming weeks, a wider selection of fresh organic fruits and vegetables will be planted offering wonderful healthy food throughout the summer and into the fall. A small fig tree was planted for the first time and our strawberry patch is being replanted.

Residents are encouraged to become members  and sign up for one of the many new small, individual plots that are available this year.  Please contact the garden director, Wanda Knapik at  mylocalgarden@gmail.com or 908-432-2198. The Bernardsville Community Garden is located on the historic Dunster Squibb property at Spring House Road off Route 202.
