At the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020, Pennington Borough, Hopewell Borough, Hopewell Township, HVRSD, and the Hopewell Valley YMCA created the Hopewell Valley Mobile Food Pantry to assist those that found themselves in need of a helping hand.  Using the school bus system and all volunteer workers, the Pantry collects, sorts, packages, and delivers groceries and fresh produce weekly to neighbors throughout the Valley.  All assistance provided is done confidentially.
