Open Hand Atlanta

A nonprofit organization

$40,846 Raised by 163 Donors

100% complete

$33,000 Goal

The Levison Family Fund (and an anonymous donor inspired by their generosity) have given Open Hand a $10,000 matching gift for Giving Tuesday! That means every gift, no matter the size, given during our Giving Tuesday campaign up to the first $10,000 raised, will be matched dollar-for-dollar, essentially doubling your donation!


We cook. We deliver. We teach. We care.  

Open Hand Atlanta has been cooking and delivering meals to our vulnerable neighbors throughout the Atlanta-metro area for over 33 years, and has become one of the country’s foremost community-based nutrition agencies serving medically-fragile individuals. Today, Open Hand prepares, packages and delivers nearly 5,000 meals a day to those who are home-bound, elderly, or too sick to prepare their own meals.  


We’re tackling nutrition security head-on.

Nutrition has been left out of the conversation when it comes to feeding people and preventing long-term health issues for far too long. Instead, policies have focused on quantity, rather than quality, of food. Open Hand Atlanta provides food that takes into account the unique dietary needs of people living with chronic illness, improving their health outcomes and quality of life. We’re helping lead the charge to bring nutrition back to the forefront. 


At Open Hand Atlanta, we know that food is medicine. 

We combine research-backed nutrition counseling and Cooking Matters classes with our evidence-based medically-tailored meals to better support our neighbors and their unique dietary needs. These interventions ensure that our clients are empowered with the knowledge they need to live a healthier life. In 2020, Open Hand clients reported significant health improvements, from fewer hospital visits to improved cholesterol and blood pressure. 


Together, we can provide nutrition for all.  

We’re providing more meals to more folks in need than ever before, and that’s thanks in large part to the overwhelming generosity from supporters like you.  As proud as we are of what we have accomplished, we know there is still so much work to do to ensure the long-term health and wellness of our clients. We must continue to explore and address the barriers that are making it harder for individuals and families to access the nutrition they desperately need. 


Food is medicine, but because of people like you, we know that food is love.  

Thank you for helping those in Atlanta and across the state of Georgia receive the nutrition and care they need to live healthier, more independent lives.
