With the support of people like you, Open Arms brings comfort, nutrition, and support to our fellow community members who are living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life threatening illnesses. We do this through delivering homemade food to approximately 1,000 clients every week across the Twin Cities, using healthy ingredients, free of charge.
Volunteer to deliver meals to our clients and help Open Arms bring nourishment to those who need it most.
Volunteers begin between 10:30am-11:30am and routes are typically 1 -2 hours long on weekdays (Monday through Friday)
Volunteer once, on a regular shift, or as you are able

It's a simple notion: people who are sick should not be without food. Yet it happens every day that people in our community with life-threatening illnesses find themselves unable to shop or cook -- and, often, without the support network to help. That's where we come in. Open Arms is the only nonprofit organization in Minnesota that cooks and delivers free meals specifically tailored to meet the nutrition needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS, MS, ALS, cancer and more than 42 other diseases. We also work with communities in Sub-Saharan Africa, providing food and technical assistance for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. We aim to nourish our community.
A diverse and fun group of volunteers and staff work together to prepare and deliver nutritious meals to 1,000+ people living with chronic and progressive illnesses in the Twin Cities.
