Celebrate Older Americans Month with Open Arms of Minnesota! We are proud to support our senior community by providing medically tailored meals and nutritional counseling to our neighbors with life-threatening illnesses and critical health issues. We are honored to focus on our senior clients through our partnerships with Trellis, Stevens Square Foundation, Minnesota Area Agency on Aging, and NextFifty Initiative.

Two-thirds of our clients are above the age of 60, and last year alone, we prepared and delivered nearly 500,000 free meals to the homes of older adults. In addition, through our unique partnership with @mealsonwheelsmn, we prepared another 450,000 meals for home-bound seniors living in Ramsey and Hennepin counties, delivered by local Meals on Wheels providers. We hope that you will join us in promoting the well-being of our older Minnesota neighbors through access to healthy and much-needed meals!
