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

With the help of more than 5,500 volunteers, we’ll deliver 600,000 delicious meals this year to people living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), as well as their caregivers and dependents.

Your support of the Cook-a-Thon makes a huge difference for people in our community:

 - $3,120 can provide a client with an entire year’s worth of healthy meals
 - $1,680 can provide a month’s worth of nausea care packs, full of easy-on-the-stomach foods, for all of our clients experiencing nausea as a result of chemotherapy or other medical treatments
 - $500 can provide five insulated delivery bags that ensure that client meals remain at a safe temperature during delivery
 - $240 can provide a client, their caregiver and two children with a week’s worth of meals
 - $60 can provide a client with a week’s worth of nutritious meals
- Just $5 can provide a delicious meal to nourish a neighbor in our community!
