The Open Door is supported by local businesses including Many Hands Coffee Company, High Point Cafe (owned by GFS alumna Meg Hagele) Yay Lunch! and Herb Scott Catering.

The Open Door Features:

  • A full espresso bar

  • Pastries, snacks, and prepared food items

  • GFS clothing and gear

  • School supplies

Typical Hours:

Monday-Friday, 7:30am - 5pm (when school is in session)
