About Us

With Open Arms, we nourish body, mind and soul

It’s a simple notion: people who are sick should not be without food. Yet every day people in our community with life-threatening illnesses find themselves unable to shop or cook — and, often, without the support network to help.

That’s where we come in. Open Arms of Minnesota is a nonprofit that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities. 

We believe that food is medicine, and our work matters to the health outcomes of our clients. With the help of over 5,400 volunteers, we’ll cook and deliver more than 600,000 delicious meals this year to people living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), as well as their caregivers and dependents.

Since our founding in 1986, Open Arms has relied on its phenomenal community of donors and volunteers to help nourish and sustain people living with illness in the Twin Cities. We couldn’t do the work we do in our beautiful kitchen, on delivery to our clients or at our organic farm project without them. Join us in making a difference in our community!
