Somerset County Mobile Food Bank

Who We Are

Our Mission

The mission of the Somerset County Food Distribution Program is 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 Program also seeks to involve local food producers by using their donated food or food they may sell to Program partners in the distribution system.  The principal partners in the program are the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the national Feeding America organization.

Our Vision

  • We will treat all people with respect.

  • We will be open and truthful in all interactions.

  • We will extend grace to you and request that you do the same.

  • We carefully monitor our resources and will continue this effective oversight so we can give the most help to those in our communities.

  • We are aware that our mission is only possible through the generosity of others and we will gratefully accept any assistance.

  • We will monitor the effectiveness of our mission by carefully recording how we are doing in measurable terms.

  • We will judicially seek to give our best service to those in our communities and actively strive to understand the needs of those whom we serve.

What We Do

Somerset County Mobile Food Bank is a free food distribution intended to bring a monthly supply of fresh produce and other items to those in Somerset County who lack, or have limited, transportation. It is coordinated by volunteers in cooperation with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Our focus is on fresh produce and other whole ingredients, but many other items are distributed based on availability.

One of the goals of the Somerset County Mobile Food Bank is to provide food to families that, due to limited income or lack of transportation, are unable to receive food assistance elsewhere.

 The Somerset County Mobile Food Bank serves families and individuals in the communities of  Boswell, Hooversville, Central City, Windber, Meyersdale, Rockwood, Confluence, Somerset, Hollsopple, and Berlin.

We are not attempting to take the place of other initiatives already in place. We invite you to get involved with your local area food banks and food pantries throughout the year. The food, provided by these banks and pantries 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.
