Feeding 500

Feeding 500 is a student leadership and service group that is dedicated to providing 500 meals to people who come to Open Doors for assistance.  They reach this goal through food drives, fundraising, and volunteer hours.

Feeding 500 was launched by a dedicated group of high school students in New Canaan in 2020 and now has two chapters, Darien and New Canaan.  New chapters will be starting in the spring of 2022!

You can reach the Feeding 500 team at feeding500@opendoorsct.org
