Broadway Cares Supports Open Arms

Broadway Cares and the Wicked National Tour Support Meal Delivery at Open Arms in Minneapolis

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS provided a record $2,827,500 in grants in February 2023 to 141 food service and meal delivery programs across the country, the product of generous donations during the Red Bucket Fall Fundraising Campaign and year-end appeals.

In the summer of 2022, the cast of Wicked volunteered with Open Arms! The group helped out at one of our urban farm locations in St. Paul, while cast members Jake Pedersen and Kimberly Immanuel delivered meals directly to our clients. You can check out the full video from the outing above!

“Food is medicine,“ Broadway Cares Executive Director Tom Viola said. “Whether you need it to ensure the effectiveness of daily medication for HIV or other chronic illness, are recovering from the challenges of long-term disability or homelessness, or simply to sustain your own well-being, regular meals and sustained nutrition is necessary for people to live dignified, healthy lives. The ultimate beneficiaries of the grants – the hundreds of thousands served by the organizations – will be relieved not having to decide between food or utility bills, freed from isolation thanks to daily home-delivered lunches and warmed by the joy of seeing their children fed.”
