Welcome to The Open Door!
Our Mission: Ending local hunger through access to healthy food
The Open Door is a hunger relief organization dedicated to ending local hunger through access to healthy food. As one of the 5 largest food shelves in Minnesota, The Open Door provides fresh and healthy food to more than 17,000 people each month through a combination of innovative programs.
WHAT WE DO
Our fixed-site food shelf is located at 3000 Ames Crossing Rd, in Eagan. Clients “shop” by appointment for fresh food and pantry staples.
Our trucks are loaded with fresh & healthy food and hit the road to visit 30+ community sites across Dakota County on a monthly basis.
During summer months, our vans deliver lunch to students in 26 neighborhoods 5 days a week throughout Dakota County.
We provide plots, plants, tools, and coaching as residents grow their own healthy food at 12 community gardens across Dakota County.
Individually or as a group. Contact Veronica Lind, Volunteer Coordinator, at 651-358-4003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
