The Open Door
The mission of The Open Door is to alleviate the impact of hunger in our community.
We use practical strategies to connect people to good food, to advocate on behalf of those in need, and to engage others in the work of building food security.
Pantry is open Monday through Friday with a variety of hours. We serve residents of Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester, Essex and Ipswich.
Community Meals are served Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Second Glance Thrift Store, located at 2 Pond Road in Gloucester, is open Monday through Saturday for shopping and donations from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
