COVID Hunger Project
The Rotary Club of Branchburg has just opened a new soup kitchen at the Presbyterian church in Bound Brook for community people who lacks transportation to receive food from the Somerset Food Bank. Rotary Club of Branchburg has been working on Hunger project for more than 5 years. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic food insecurity has increased in our community. This is particularly try for households with young children. We realized that Bound Brook’s resident community was not able to receive food due to lack of transportation said club president John Shockley. In addition, John and fellow Branchburg Rotarian's are delivering weekly food donations to the Lamont School Bound Brook food kitchen, St. John's church in Somerville and Senior center in Somerville as well.
Knowing that the community has many families that are struggling, due to conditions brought on by COVID-19, the Rotary Club wanted to do more for our community.  The club has already donated more than $45,000 worth of food from various food drives.
With the support of our club's newest member and award winning chef  Jim McGrady has been cooking food every since early February to feed more than 500 people each week.  This is our 5th week of operation said Joe Horner, Assistant governor and member of the Branchburg Rotary club,  "Jim is looking to fulfill his passion and purpose and give back to his community, so he challenged the club members to help to raise additional funds for this special project". Jim is making hot soups and luncheon meals weekly at the Bound Brook Presbyterian Church. We would like to continue this project, but your support is urgently needed to continue this humanitarian project in our own community. Please help to feed people who are effected by COVID-19 PANDEMIC. Your small donation of $5 will feed one person.  If you like to help, please support clicking these links. or

According to Bill Stabile, member of the Hunger Project “Now more than ever, we must come together as a community to help one another. Rotary has a long history of showing support in many ways to both local organizations and international service projects, and we are proud to carry on that strong tradition with our current members.”
