We cook and deliver free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities

With Open Arms, we nourish body, mind and soul...

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.

Do you know someone in need?

We believe that food is medicine, and our work matters to the health outcomes of our clients. With the help of over 7,500 volunteers, we’ll cook and deliver more than 600,000 delicious meals this year to people living with life-threatening illnesses, as well as their caregivers and dependents.

Our Response to COVID-19

Like everyone in our community, we too at Open Arms are experiencing the dramatic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak. From changing our daily operations to canceling fundraisers to altering our delivery methods, everything is changing. But please rest assured that we are closely following official guidelines (from the CDC and the MN Department of Health) and state/federal recommendations and orders, all in order to continue our primary mission: to cook and deliver free, healthy meals to our clients in need.
