It’s a simple notion: people who are sick should not be without food. Yet it happens every day that people in our community with life-threatening illnesses find themselves unable to shop or cook and, often, without the support network to help.
With the support of people like you, Open Arms brings comfort, nutrition, and support to our fellow community members who are living with life-threatening illnesses. We deliver homemade food to approximately 1,000 clients every week across the Twin Cities, using healthy ingredients, free of charge. Join us to bring nourishment to those who need it most!
Weekday volunteers begin between 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and routes are typically 1-2 hours long. Open Arms is also looking for Saturday delivery drivers, with routes starting between 9:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m. and lasting typically one hour—bring friends and family to deliver with you, and have a good time making your community a better place! This is also a great opportunity to introduce service to kids; Open Arms is excited to offer fun and engaging volunteer opportunities for the whole family.
In return for your service, Open Arms will provide you with the opportunity to part of a warm and giving community, engaging and flexible volunteer opportunities, and the chance to give back in a meaningful way. Volunteer once, on a regular shift, or as you are able. It’s simple acts of kindness like this that remind clients just how many people in their community care about them!
