The Open Door Announces The
Unsung Hero Award
As the pandemic brought the world to its collective knees, the COMMUNITY stepped up to help out. The Open Door is pleased to name the collective COMMUNITY as the recipient of this annual award. Together we are strong. We are resilient. We can overcome.
React. Retool. Respond.
The mission of The Open Door is to alleviate the impact of hunger in our community.
To accomplish our mission we use practical strategies to connect people to good food, advocate on behalf of those in need, and engage others in the work of building food security.
