Open Gate Ministries
Dinuba, CA 93618
Details: Open Gate Ministries of Dinuba, CA is a private nonprofit corporation, serving the needy of Northern Tulare and Southern Fresno Counties since 1974. The purpose of Open Gate Ministries is to assist and support the homeless and hungry of our community with emergency services, provided according to the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Food Distribution: We serve our communities with regular food distribution. We are also now receiving weekly deliveries of food from Wal-Mart through it’s Community Giving program. Starting July 1, we became the ONLY USDA food distributor in Northern Tulare County. This means that we will receive USDA food every month, instead of every-other month, and there will be more of it. We also anticipate the number of clients coming to our food distribution program to increase significantly, perhaps even doubling. This change necessitates some revisions in our procedures and we will be refining our operation as we proceed. USDA food, while nourishing and helpful, does not supply all of the needs of the individuals it serves.
