Open Gate Community Church works with El Pasoans Fighting Hunger to provide quality food to those who are in need.
Currently, we are only able to make distribution once a month on the first Thursday of the month. We are working to return to a more robust distribution schedule as resources permit.
For the safety of everyone people are allowed to start lining up at 12 pm.
Bag distribution will begin as soon as after 12 noon as practical. Please have the required identification to show proof of residency is required. A current electric, water, or gas bill, for example. We also accept current proof of auto insurance with the correct address. We also require a government-issued form of identification.
Since we want to provide any fresh fruit, vegetables, etc we will be receiving delivery on the days we are making the distribution. This may require a delay in distribution start times
The safety of our guests and volunteers is paramount, anyone who is deemed by the staff to be disruptive or a threat will be asked to leave immediately.
