Project Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides meals with love to seniors and the critically ill. 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 old age. We serve San Francisco and Alameda Counties, engaging more than 125 volunteers every day to nourish our community.
Project Open Hand’s mission is to nourish and engage our community by providing meals with love to the sick and the elderly.
Your shifts at POH will start with an educational orientation and a complimentary dinner. Following you will volunteer in our Kitchen slicing and dicing whole food and helping assemble meal packages for our clients to pick up.
IMPORTANT: It is important to note that all volunteers must be 15 years or older and dress appropriately in close-toed shoes, shirts with sleeves (no tank tops) and full length pants (no shorts/capris/ skirts, etc.). Hats are also welcomed for volunteers who prefer not to wear hairnets. Unfortunately, if a member of the group does not follow the above dress code they will not be permitted to volunteer. Please ensure that all volunteers are aware of the dress code prior to arrival at Project Open Hand.
