We Cook. We Deliver. We Teach. We Care.

Now in our 30th year, Open Hand Atlanta helps under-served individuals prevent or better manage chronic disease through tailored nutrition interventions, which include a wide variety of health-promoting meal plans as well as nutrition counseling and coaching delivered by an experienced team of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists. With the help of 10,000+ annual volunteers, we prepare, package and deliver nearly 6,000 meals each day in 19 metro-Atlanta counties, making it one of the largest community-based nutrition agencies in the country.

WHAT STARTED AS A SIMPLE ACT OF KINDNESS QUICKLY BECAME A LABOR OF LOVE

Open Hand was founded in 1988 to provide meals to individuals affected and disenfranchised by HIV/AIDS. Subsequently, our mission was expanded to meet the growing needs of our community, and Open Hand now serves our friends and neighbors living with or disabled by virtually any nutrition-sensitive chronic disease, homebound seniors, and at-risk youth and families.

DOING OUR PART TO HELP OVERCOME THE EPIDEMIC OF CHRONIC DISEASE

Our mission is to reach as many of our friends and neighbors as possible who don't have access to healthy food and who don't understand how to make nutritional choices that could drastically improve the quality of their lives.

Open Hand addresses food insecurity by providing our clients with the highest quality nutrition available, and we eliminate access as a barrier by delivering healthy meals, at no cost, directly to their door. Whether they are chronically ill, homebound, disabled or simply at high risk for chronic disease, we teach and empower them to make healthier food choices for themselves and their families, so they are better prepared to face the life challenges ahead.
