Mission Statement

Project Open Hand’s mission is to improve health outcomes and quality of life by providing nutritious meals to the sick and vulnerable, caring for and educating our community.


Founded in 1985, Project Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides meals with love to critically ill neighbors and seniors. Our food is like medicine, helping clients recover from illness, get stronger, and lead healthier lives.

Every day, we prepare 2,500 nutritious meals and provide 200 bags of healthy groceries to help sustain our clients as they battle serious illnesses, isolation, or the health challenges of aging. We serve San Francisco and Oakland, engaging more than 125 volunteers daily to nourish our community.

I only worked in the kitchen once, but have had a weekly volunteer shift in the grocery center for almost two years. I’m glad to be doing something so direct and hands on. Clients and fellow volunteers are great.

I am volunteering with friends from school. This is my first time volunteering with the organization.
