We invite you to join us at The Open Door’s
Empty Bowls Drive-Thru event!
For a $30 contribution guests will drive-thru the parking lot at Mount Calvary Lutheran Church and receive delicious soup to-go from one of our restaurant partners, a Great Harvest dinner roll, and select a ceramic bowl from two design options.
Your attendance at this fundraising event will help support the 14,000 community members The Open Door provides healthy food support to each month – double the number of people served monthly prior to the pandemic.

Thank you for investing in The Open Door’s mission – we are grateful for you! Because of the outpouring of support from you and others like you, we have been able to take bold steps to address the impacts of COVID-19 in our community. I ask you to consider a Thanksgiving gift to help us continue providing fresh and healthy food to more people than ever.
As we've reached the 90 day mark of the COVID-19 crisis, we wanted to share with you what your support has made possible! Thank to you, our team has more than doubled the number of families we are supporting with fresh and healthy food!
In a normal month pre-covid, we served 7,000 people. During the month of May, you helped us provide fresh and healthy food to more than 18,000 of our community members. Within the last 90 days more than 60,000 people in Dakota County have filed for unemployment benefits leaving more people than ever before needing support. It is heartbreaking that so many in our community are in need of food support, but it is inspiring how you have helped our team respond.

We at The Open Door want to start your week with some inspiring news about the impact you have made in our community over the first 30 days of this crisis response. We asked for more support during this crisis and you responded in a remarkably generous way. Because you gave more, we are doing more.
You helped us not only meet our $200,000 goal for the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign but exceed it. Your infusion of generosity has helped us serve more people in more places at a time when it’s needed most.
In the last 30 days our volunteers and staff have provided fresh and healthy food to nearly 10,000 of our neighbors. We started our summer meals program early and have already served more than 5,000 meals to low-income students directly in their neighborhoods.
