On Your Mark
On Your Mark is a 12-week program that offers job training and workforce readiness to youth ages 16-21 with a Culinary Arts or Retail track.
The Open Door partners with local grocers, farmers, markets, caterers, and fisheries to rescue food that would otherwise have gone to waste. The rescued items are distributed through the food pantry and Mobile Market.
Through these partnerships, we rescue more than 225,000 pounds of prepared and perishable foods annually.
