Open Arms of Minnesota cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illness in the Twin Cities.

It’s a simple notion: people who are sick should not be without food. Yet every day people in our community with life-threatening illnesses find themselves unable to shop or cook — and, often, without the support network to help.

That’s where we come in. Open Arms of Minnesota cooks and delivers free meals tailored to meet the nutrition needs of individuals living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). This year we'll deliver nearly half a million delicious meals to clients throughout the Twin Cities.

Meals from Open Arms are more than just food. Our fresh, made-from-scratch meals:

- Allow clients to spend more time on the things that matter in their life.
- Ease the financial burden of illness for our clients.
- Make living with life-threatening or chronic illness easier for our clients.
- Help clients focus on healing by providing delicious meals to caregivers and dependents.
- Serve as a reminder that clients aren't alone on their journey with illness.

A donation to Open Arms provides nourishment and hope to our clients:

"I am still getting used to having multiple sclerosis, and Open Arms has been a huge help. It's hard to not be able to drive and go to work and go grocery shopping, so having meals from you has been great. Thank you so much." - Michael, client

"I just had my first delivery and it was so good! I can actually feel the life and care that was put into it by everyone who helped make the food and bring it here. I can't believe how good the vegetarian meals are! It really has changed my life this week." - Sarah, client

"I really feel blessed to be getting this good nutrition. Some of it I could not afford to buy because I have no income at this time, and I eat all of it to help heal my cancer. Open Arms has really helped me get though this illness. My family and I appreciate all the help Open Arms has offered!" - Shirley, client
