Mayor Moench Announces Bridgewater Partnership with Boxcar Groceries

Bridgewater, NJ - Today, Bridgewater Township announced a partnership with Boxcar Groceries who will use the Municipal Complex for their contact-free, drive through grocery pickup.

Boxcar partners with local produce providers to make boxes of grocery staples available for purchase for Bridgewater residents who maybe nervous about going to a grocery during this challenging time.

The boxes include Milk, Eggs, Fruit and Vegetables and the Township is planning on working with some local businesses to provide additional add-ons in the future.

"We are excited to partner with such an innovative company who has adjusted their original business model in order to fit the needs of the current environment," said Mayor Matthew Moench. "I hope our residents who wish to avoid the stress of grocery shopping in public, will find this service of value to them."

“The response to our contact-free grocery pickups has been tremendous in the towns we are serving. We are excited to partner with Bridgewater to make drive-through groceries available to residents here, as well,” said Boxcar CEO Joe Colangelo.

Here’s how it works:

1.    If residents are interested in taking advantage of this service, they should go to -- where you can reserve their box or donate one to a local charity.
2.    At the scheduled pick up time, drive to the Bridgewater Municipal Complex at 100 Commons Way and follow the signage to the pick-up area.
3.    The staff will observe license plates, which residents will submit upon purchase, and load your grocery box into your car. Completely Contact-free.

The first grocery pick up will be this Saturday, May 2 nd from 11AM-1PM.
