Greetings from The Open Door!
We appreciate your recent gift to help feed the hungry! "Normal life" has mostly resumed for many of us, but COVID-19 has dealt longer-term setbacks to single-parent families, mothers of young children, and low-income workers paying higher prices for essentials like rent, groceries and gas.
With your help, The Open Door has scaled up our services dramatically since the spring of 2020, doubling the number of people served monthly across Dakota County since 2019. We provide a variety of nutritious food items through programs like our fixed-site Eagan Pantry and Garden to Table, which recently added its 12th location and helps food-shelf clients grow their own fruits and vegetables,
Our food shelf does its work with 400 active volunteers each month, but we still need and welcome new ones, especially at the Eagan Pantry and to stock vehicles at our mobile distribution site in Apple Valley. To schedule a first-time volunteer shift at one of our pantries, go to https://theopendoorpantry.org/get-involved/volunteer/.
Thanks again for bringing healthy food and peace of mind to those in need.
