About Us

Reverend Glenda Jeters founded the food bank in late 1998 and has been feeding people ever since. Approved as a Not-for-Profit 501 (C) 3 Corporation and approved to distribute food by the United States Department of Agriculture, the food bank services southwest Florida each and every day.

The Open Door Food Bank started out feeding people out of the house owned by Rev. Jeters. David Davis, a professional chef, soon joined forces with Rev. Jeters and together they put in thousands of hours making the food bank a growing success. Today the Open Door Food Bank is a partner agency with the Larry Jones-Feed the Children organization.

The guiding principle behind the food bank is that all the services are free. There is absolutely no charge for food, care packages, and/or deliveries. The Open Door Food Bank does make deliveries to those that cannot get out and around or who are confined due to a temporary or prolonged illness. Food and care packages are also delivered to Public Housing areas, Elderly Complexes, Apartment Complexes and other needy areas in southwest Florida.

Dear Reverend Jeters:

On behalf of the residents, board of commissioners, and myself I would like to take this opportunity to convey our appreciation to your organization, The Open Door Food Bank for providing more than 50 food baskets. Our senior residents and many families truly enjoyed the wonderful food. As I watched the joy expressed in their faces, I knew they would be able to enjoy a nutritious holiday meal "with all the trimmings".

Lee Cole, Executive Director, Lee County Housing Authority

Dear Rev. Jeters,

This letter is to thank you and your staff for the food boxes that were given to the hundred tenants here at Palm City Gardens. Thanks again for being so thoughtful.

Pat Gray, Manager
