The Open Door Food Kitchen is moving from its current location to a new facility on S. 8th Street. The Food Kitchen has been a community staple for 33 years and serves upwards of 175 people daily. Roughly 80% of these individuals have jobs but do not earn a livable wage. They are the working poor in our community but at least they and their family can have at least one decent meal a day. The Food Kitchen operates purely on donations and volunteers and does not receive any government assistance.
The estimated cost for the building is $700,000. Presently, a group of volunteers has raised close to $560,000. Donations can be made directly to the Open Door Food Kitchen.
