About Project Open Hand


730 Polk St;;, San Francisco, CA 94109, US

Mission Statement

Project Open Hand provides food and nourishment to improve the quality of life for the men, women and children it serves. Project Open Hand programs include: meal, grocery and nutrition counseling for people with symptomatic HIV and AIDS; congregate lunch and nutrition education for people over 60 years of age; meal service for homebound and critically ill people under the age of 60. Services are available to eligible clients living in San Francisco and Alameda counties.


Don an apron and make a difference with a healthy meal. More than 30 years ago, LS&Co. was one of the first companies to acknowledge HIV/AIDS and to apply significant resources towards its eradication. This year you'll continue that important work by preparing and packaging nutritious meals for people living with HIV/AIDS. While volunteers work, they will learn about various way Project Open Hand is working to make their organization more sustainable like their greenhouse, composting efforts and, using solar panels.
