Open Door Mission Searches for Hunger Heroes Across Omaha Metro
Would you or your business host a food drive to help meet the urgent food needs of our community? August marks Open Door Mission’s (opendoormission.org) annual food collection initiative, Hunger Heroes. They are encouraging local entities to be a “Hunger Hero” by hosting a food drive throughout the month. Through the efforts of this particular food drive as well as others throughout the year, Open Door Mission will provide, on average, 2,100 daily nutritious meals at the community kitchen as well as serving over 1,000 people a day at the Mission’s Manna Food Pantry. Current food needs include boxed meals, canned meat, cereal, and pasta.
Open Door Mission is a Gospel Rescue Mission founded in 1954 committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty by providing basic needs and life-changing programs for the homeless and needy who need them most.

They also provide homeless preventative measures every day to more than 1,000 people living in poverty, empowering individuals and families to remain in their own homes and preventing homelessness.
