Project Age Well is a program offered by Project Open Hand and supported by the Administration for Community Living that aims to improve health and wellness for older adults while reducing social isolation and nutrition insecurity.  

If you are interested, please fill out this form or contact us at [email protected]  or (415) 497-2330 and we will be in touch! 

How it works: Older adults in San Francisco participate in weekly online nutrition and wellness classes with small peer groups over Zoom. Clients will also receive food delivered weekly for a maximum of 16 weeks and the opportunity to meet 1:1 with our Nutritionist and Care Coordinator for personalized consultation on individual needs.   

Food: Clients can receive either healthy, medically-tailored prepared meals or fresh groceries once a week for 16 weeks. This food can be delivered to your home or picked up at our office or one of our mobile sites

Individual Sessions: Clients have the opportunity to meet individually with our Nutritionist and Care Coordinator for personalized consultation on individual needs and wellness goals.   

Classes: Clients attend classes once per week for one hour over Zoom. Clients can choose to participate in classes on Tuesdays from 11:00am-12:00pm or on Wednesdays from 1:00pm-2:00pm. 

Classes are focused on two main topics 1) Nutrition and 2) Health & Wellness. View a list of our classes below.
