Social Services    

Families and individuals in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors including low wages, job loss, injuries, illness, age, domestic violence, or divorce. It is our mission to help the residents in South Brunswick deal with these situations and circumstances to the best of our abilities. Crisis intervention provides immediate assistance for those in need. The Food Pantry, assistance with utility bills, rent and food certificates are some of the services we provide. An application is completed for each recipient and is updated during the year. All funds and food are provided from donations.

Important Update

South Brunswick Social Services in cooperation with South Brunswick Office of Emergency Management will be conducting "Food Drive Friday" this Friday to raise funds and stock the food pantry shelves with donations. The Food Pantry run by South Brunswick Township feeds some of our neediest residents. The first food drive two weeks ago was a great success! The residents of our amazing community came out and donated thousands of items of food, money and gift cards! The demand for the Food Pantry has grown tremendously and any assistance will be appreciated. 

We will be collecting food again this Friday, April 3rd from 9am to 3pm in front of South Brunswick Police Headquarters. There will be boxes outside of Headquarters where motorists can just pull up and drop off their donations. If you are unable to drop off items, you can still help by making a financial donation. 

Monetary donations would be greatly appreciated, and can be made by clicking the link below:
