How to Get Started

We’ll make it easy to get the nutrition you need: To qualify for Open Arms’ meal delivery service, you need to be diagnosed with a life-threatening illness such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, ALS, COPD, ESRD or CHF AND one of the following: either physically unable to shop or cook for yourself OR have a compromised nutritional status. You must live in the Twin Cities metropolitan area to receive meal delivery service. We do not qualify individuals based on income status.

A signature from your medical provider, case manager or social worker is required. After we receive your completed application form, we will assess your eligibility and a member of our staff will contact you to determine your nutrition needs and to arrange meal deliveries that fit your schedule. If you are not eligible for services our staff will assist you in finding other resources.
