HBRC Ongoing Missions
God calls us to engage all humanity with our presence and participation. We find joy in serving with our financial and physical support both local and not so local missions. In addition to our regularly supported missions, each month we select a local benevolence to highlight and support through our “Coffee Hour Missions” program.
Open Cupboard Food Pantry
Longtime High Bridge resident and HBRC member, Anne Underhill, started the HB Food Pantry in 1993, as a way to help a local family in need. In 1993 the name was changed to Open Cupboard Food Pantry to reflect the growth of the pantry to support families in northern Hunterdon County.
Today, HBRC, continues to support OCFP by collecting food each week to donate. Special donations are collected in November for Thanksgiving and the spring to create Easter Baskets for the children of OCFP.
