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 grows,   cooks and delivers free, medically-tailored 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 7,600 volunteers, we’ll cook and deliver more than 620,000 delicious meals this year to people living with HIV/AIDS, Cancer, CHF, COPD, End Stage Kidney Disease, MS or ALS.

Your support of the Cook-a-Thon makes a huge difference for neighbors 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
