Open Your Heart provided The Open Door with funding toward a floor scale for their new food pantry facility. This floor scale will enable The Open Door to take in food donations and purchases quickly and efficiently from hunger relief partners, enabling them to distribute a wide variety of fresh food and pantry staples to the food insecure across Dakota County.
The Open Door is a hunger relief organization dedicated to ending local hunger through access to healthy food. Through its collective programs, The Open Door serves more than 14,000 Dakota County residents each month and distributes over 2 million pounds of food annually, 70% of which is fresh and/or perishable. Clients are able to access healthy food choices through a fixed-site food pantry in Eagan, multiple Mobile Pantry sites, the Mobile Lunch Box, and the Garden To Table program.
Thank you, The Open Door Pantry, for everything you do!
