Our Programs

Faith Open Door Summer Feeding 2016
During the summer of 2016 Faith Open Door traveled to 11 different apartment complex and fed a total of 300-400 kids a day for the 9 weeks the kids were out on summer break.  Then we continued to feed afterschool from August 2016 – May 2017 averaging a total of 75 kids a day serving a dinner and snack and also assisted with homework.
Faith Open Door Summer Feeding 2017
This summer because our kitchen was not operational, we had to reduce the number of apartments we traveled to feed the kids.  The number reduced from 11 to 4 and we feed a total of 250 kids a day.
