Serving hungry residents of northern Hunterdon County and southern Warren County.

Open Cupboard Food Pantry, Inc., is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency . We believe our community has a responsibility to address the food needs of those who cannot afford to feed themselves and their families. Although less visible than in urban areas, the need in Hunterdon and Warren County is significant.

Staffed entirely by volunteers, Open Cupboard Food Pantry in Clinton, New Jersey, and The Washington Basket, in Washington, NJ are funded by donations of food and money, and by proceeds of our in-house Thrift Shop in Clinton, which accepts and sells donated clothing and household items. We also gratefully welcome donations of your time and talents as volunteers. To become a client or learn more about how you can help, call us at 908-730-7320.
