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.

That’s where we come in. Open Arms of Minnesota is a nonprofit that cooks and delivers free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities. 

We believe that food is medicine, and our work matters to the health outcomes of our clients. With the help of over 6,000 volunteers, we’ll cook and deliver more than 600,000 delicious meals this year to people living with illnesses like cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), as well as their caregivers and dependents.

Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday at Open Arms, when we make sure every client has the ability to celebrate with a delicious turkey dinner with all the fixings with their loved ones. This tradition dates back throughout our 31-year history as an organization, and we need your help to make sure it continues!
