Project Open Hand has served the San Francisco Bay Area since 1985. Over the years, we have expanded our nutrition services to serve not only the HIV/AIDS community, but also people who are fighting a wide variety of illnesses.
We deliver hot, nutritious meals to anyone under 60 years of age, who is homebound due to critical physical illness or medical condition. This includes neighbors who are living with life threatening illness, are experiencing an acute exacerbation of a chronic illness, or are recovering from recent surgery, and cannot shop or cook for themselves.
For our Homebound/Critically Ill Clients, we provide hot, home-delivered meals seven days a week. If clients prefer, we provide the option of a once-a-week delivery of frozen meals, which clients can heat up and eat when they choose. For those with special dietary needs, we offer options including vegetarian, low-fat, low-sodium or pureed meals.
