Year In Review, As Told On Social Media
Open Arms commenced what may be considered the most transformative year in its illustrious history with the inauguration of the state-of-the-art St. Paul Kitchen & Campus. Our second standalone facility was inaugurated with a bread-cutting ceremony in January and an open house in February. With the St. Paul Kitchen & Campus now fully operational, Open Arms went on to serve more clients and provide more meals than ever before throughout 2023. Annual events, such as Moveable Feast, Pop-Up Dinners, TOAST!, Turkey Drive, Volunteer Appreciation Week, and Holiday Treats, enjoyed all the fanfare of years past. Our CEO, Leah, marked her ten-year anniversary leading Open Arms by delivering the 12 millionth meal in our history. We even rolled out the first meals as part of our Cultural Meals Program, and expanded our delivery zone to include new geographic regions! There is a lot to celebrate from the past year. Here’s a look back at some of the hits and highlights, as they played out on social media.
