JHFoster is a proud sponsor of The Open Door Pantry. This summer between July 8th and 12th, John Henry Foster collected specific food items for donation to The Open Door Pantry – Mobile Lunch Box program. Donations included individually packaged snacks, fruit cups, 100% fruit juice boxes, microwave macaroni and cheese, microwave oatmeal, and kid-friendly granola/snack bars.

The Open Door’s Mobile Lunch Box program offers free healthy bagged lunches for children that include sandwiches, fresh whole fruit, vegetables and juice. Kids also receive a free bag of healthy, wholesome foods to take home each week.

This summer between June 10th and August 15th, the Mobile Lunch Box is on the road five days a week, stopping at one of four locations in Dakota County, depending on the day. Families can visit one location or all. Everyone is welcome.

Our community leads the state in the number of missed meals among children during the summer months.
