The mission of Open Arms is to nourish mind, body and soul. Our vision is a world of abundance, where people will not go hungry.

This Give to the Max Day, help Open Arms "Fill Our Freezer" by raising $50,000 to provide ingredients for over 50,000 meals for our clients this winter. Make a donation and support us as we cook and deliver nutritious and delicious meals to people at the most vulnerable times in their lives.

Every year, Open Arms prepares and delivers almost 450,000 meals to over 1400 clients with life-threatening illnesses. On one day - Give to the Max Day - we can raise the funds for ingredients for 10% of those meals. We need you to help us "Fill our Freezer"!

50,000 meals = 6 weeks of meals for our clients!

Meal by meal, week by week, Open Arms changes lives by replenishing bodies and spirits. We cook and deliver free meals for people with chronic and life-threatening illness – healthy dishes cooked, packed and delivered by over 2,000 community volunteers. Every day, we provide top-notch nutrition, a warm smile, and a side of hope to people in our community. You can help by making a donation today.

Who is Open Arms?

We believe that access to a nutritious diet is absolutely essential for people living with serious illness. Meals from Open Arms are more than just food:

  • Our registered dietitian creates menus designed to strengthen the immune system and makes treatments and medications more effective.
  • Our meals are a daily reminder that our clients are not alone in their journey.
  • Our chefs and volunteers take care of cooking, so clients can focus on their health, and spend the moments when they feel well with their loved ones.
  • Our services, provided free of cost, ease the financial burden of clients, many of whom can no longer work.

What else does Open Arms do?

Open Arms has a thriving community program that delivers 460,000 meals to over 2,000 metro-area clients and their families each year. We support local, sustainable agriculture through Open Farms - our community garden in St. Paul, which produces fresh high-quality food for client meals. In addition, Open Arms is proud of our international program bringing critical nutrition to thousands of families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa.
