OPEN M is an acronym that stands for Opportunity for People Everywhere in Need Ministry. They are a comprehensive, faith-based ministry that helps people throughout the greater Akron area meet the spiritual and physical challenges of living with scarce resources. Hot lunch is served during the last two weeks of each month from 11:30 am. - 1 p.m. (except July, November and December). Some of our United Methodist Churches volunteer by preparing and serving these meals.
In the Summertime, OPEN M provides a mid-day meal for up to 300 individuals each day. Many of these individuals are children who are missing the daily breakfasts and lunches supplied by the public schools during the school year.
