What is the Cook-a-Thon?

The Open Arms Cook-a-Thon is a 24-hour volunteer event where teams of six people will fill two-hour shifts to prepare, cook and package nutritious food for Open Arms of Minnesota’s clients living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities. Our goal is to prepare a week's worth meals in just 24 hours!

Every member of each team will be asked to raise at least $125 to support their work, resulting in at least $750 raised to support Open Arms' clients from each team. 

This event will get the Open Arms’ kitchen at least a week ahead of production and add significant capacity to our weekly efforts to provide nutritious, delicious food to more than 1,000 people in our community!
