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 is the only nonprofit organization in Minnesota that cooks and delivers free meals tailored to meet the nutrition needs of individuals living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). We also work with communities in sub-Saharan Africa, providing food and technical assistance for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
Open Arms is unique in its phenomenal community of donors and more than 2,400 volunteers — the folks who work with us every day, ensuring that we continue to do our work with enthusiasm, joy and success.
