Community Services

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Community Services is involved in several community service endeavors throughout the year. 

Residents can contact our Department with inquiries in how they can help or be helped! We are also able to direct the community to other service agencies in the surrounding area that can be of assistance.

Food Donations

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Community Services is a designated food drop off point for the Middlesex County Food Organization and Outreach Distribution Services (M.C.F.O.O.D.S). Interested residents can drop off food Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm.

Effective January 1, 2020:  

All food donations dropped off at the Recreation Office will be donated to Aldersgate Outreach Community Center and M.F.O.O.D.S.  The Recreation Department will no longer maintain an "Emergency Food Pantry" but will act as a conduit to both Aldersgate and M.C.F.O.O.D.S. to better serve the residents of East Brunswick. Letter of Explanation from Michael Reissner - Director of Recreation, Parks & Community Services.

Limited scholarships are available for the Daisy Recreation Summer program and the Summer Day Camp program. Please contact the Recreation office in January at 732-390-6797 for more information.
