Project Open Hand’s mission is to nourish and engage our community by providing meals with love to the sick and the elderly.
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 Alameda Counties, engaging more than 125 volunteers every day 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.
