The Open Door

Here is an opportunity for your family to help in a safe environment. We have worked with Open Door in the past and we have always had a great experience.

They have reached an agreement with Independent School District 191 to make use of the recently closed Metcalf Middle School on the Burnsville/Eagan border as a permanent site all winter long! Every Tuesday, starting November 10th, we will be at Metcalf Middle School from 3:00-6:00 pm making fresh and healthy food available for up to 500 families.

We are in need of 20+ volunteers every Tuesday -This is a great opportunity for civic groups, faith groups, work groups, etc.
• All volunteers will be safely spaced apart
• Training is provided
• Volunteers should be prepared to be outdoor
Sign up to volunteer


We have adopted 3 community parks to service over the next 2 years.  This is a City of Hastings program, and we are very proud to be a part of it.  In our opinion, we get to take of care 3 of the best parks in our town because they are connected to our historic downtown area!!  They are:

Oliver’s Grove

Levee Riverfront

The Depot Park

This is a fantastic opportunity to give to our beautiful town.  We are looking for about 5-10 people or a few families to each take a park or rotate throughout the year.
