Information for MCFOODS Network Partner Agencies

The MCFOODS warehouse, located in East Brunswick, is open every Tuesday and Wednesday morning for registered agencies to receive food to help them better serve their clients.

 

Canned and nonperishable goods as well as fresh bread are available to our partner agencies every Tuesday.  MCFOODS collaborates with the Community FoodBank of NJ and NJ Farmers Against Hunger  in an effort to make more healthy, fresh food available for needy Middlesex County residents. Every Wednesday we distribute fresh produce received from these partners.

Sometimes the food we distribute is nearing the best-used-by date. Please see the statement from the County Health Department regarding product dating and food safety.
