Door Food & Nutrition Services
Our mission is to empower young people to reach their potential by providing comprehensive youth development services in a diverse and caring environment.
Through Cookshops, off-site trips to local bodegas and green markets, and the support of trained nutrition specialists, you'll learn not only how to eat healthily, but also how to shop on a budget for nourishing, nutrition-packed foods.
We believe that educating and bettering youth starts from the ground up, and, as is often said, you are what you eat. When you come to our table, you'll bolster your well-being, and learn more about the opportunities for success offered at The Door. Beyond giving you meals, we'll work to teach the rudimentary steps and skills for creating and sustaining a healthy eating lifestyle in and out of The Door, and we supply all the lessons and tools necessary to show you how to cook on your own.
The Door offers evening meals Monday through Friday, along with snacks, nutritional education and counseling from experienced nutritionists and food experts. Our staff is dedicated to your growth, health and education through nutrition.
