At Project Open Hand, we rely on volunteers every day to help prepare, package and deliver meals with love, and distribute groceries to sick and elderly neighbors. Volunteers also help us staff special events throughout the year.

We offer a variety of opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved in San Francisco and the East Bay.
