Hill Country Daily Bread hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for their new Regional Resource and Training Center in Boerne on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at the corner of Cascade Caverns Road and Ranch Road.
Ground was broken by Agnes and David Hubbard for the 10 acre campus with three facilities totaling over 40,000 sq. ft. Over 200 people from eight counties in the Texas Hill Country, including elected officials, donors, the HCDBM Board of Directors, pastors, foundations, staff and volunteers, were in attendance.
Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries was created by the Hubbards in October 2000 and began in a garage serving 30 families. Since 2002, HCDBM has operated from their 17,500 sq. ft. headquarters in Boerne with over 5,000 volunteers. Currently, HCDBM serves over 18,000 adults, children and families in need through their unique food banking and case management model.
HCDBM serves eight Hill Country counties - Bandera, Comal, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Medina, Uvalde and Northern Bexar. This new facility will allow them to expand their programs and services while continuing to be a volunteer destination for all of the counties they serve.
HCDBM's mission statement is "to help and equip the Body of Christ with food, resources and training necessary to transform our communities and the lives of those in poverty and need through the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ."
