New Brunswick sets food delivery for the benefit of MCFOODs

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – The city of New Brunswick is helping the Middlesex county program that distributes unnecessary food and necessities to a network of over 120 partner organizations to meet growing demand during the COVID-19 health crisis.

As a result, the city has arranged a drop-off at the Unit Square Community Center on Remsen Avenue for those wishing to assist the MFlesex County Food Organization and Outreach Distribution Services (MCFOOD) in supplying its offering and ensuring that all Middlesex County residents in need have access to nutritious food.

MCFOODs is a longtime partner of the city of New Brunswick and of various organizations and groups that make up the Feeding New Brunswick network, united in their goal of tackling food insecurity.
