Mission Statement

We serve free hot meals to anyone in need.


Open Heart Kitchen is the only hot meal program in the Tri-Valley area. We feed the hungry every weekday at fi­ve locations in Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin, no questions asked.

Founded in 1995 as an interfaith effort, Open Heart Kitchen's mission is to offer nutritious meals free of charge to our hungry neighbors in need here in the Tri-Valley. ALL ARE WELCOME.

There is no qualifying process, and meals can be eaten at our multiple serving sites or taken to go. Our guests come from all walks of life; the homeless, seniors on fi­xed incomes, the underemployed and many low-income families struggling to make ends meet. Open Heart Kitchen is their safety net against hunger.

I currently volunteer because I love helping those people in need and to see a smile on people's faces makes the world a happier place to live.
