The Healing Power of Food

Open Hand is one of the largest community-based providers of home-delivered meals and nutrition services in the U.S. Founded in 1988, the nonprofit delivers delicious, nourishing meals and nutrition education to thousands of seniors, children and families, and our neighbors who are at risk for or have a disability or illness. We believe food is medicine and food is love.

In 2022, Open Hand cooked nearly 1.4 million made-from-scratch meals that promote health and are approved by a registered dietitian before they are delivered directly to clients’ homes. With custom menus to address specific health conditions, all Open Hand meals meet or exceed the most rigorous nutritional standards set by the American Diabetes Association, the National Kidney Foundation, and the American Heart Association. In 2023, Open Hand served their 35 millionth meal during their 35th year of service to the community.
