Open Arms of Minnesota

Goodbye, 1414 Franklin Ave.

This week, we end our 13 year history with 1414 Franklin Avenue. Our neighbors there, the American Indian Community Development Corporation, become the new owners of that place in which we created so many wonderful meals and memories. We’re also grateful for all of the clients who were able to receive our help during our time on Franklin Avenue. I know that the food we delivered from that kitchen made a difference to them.

If you haven’t stopped in to see our new building, be sure to do that. We’re finishing our second month of cooking on Bloomington Avenue, and are cooking/mixing/slicing at full steam. (Grand Opening, June 12!)
