Open Arms of Minnesota

The Scoop

Volunteer Opportunities


We need extra help during the summer months and would love it if you could help out! Volunteer opportunities in our kitchen and bakery are a great way to cool down during the dog days of summer. Every week we prepare and deliver nearly 18,000 meals to our critically ill neighbors across Minnesota. 

If you’re looking to get outside and get your hands dirty, we also have plenty of ways to help out at one of our five Open Farms locations. Our greatest volunteer needs this summer include delivery, Open Farms shifts, shipping shifts, and various roles at the Kitchen of Opportunities (KOO).

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Open Arms! Go HERE to sign up!
