Open Arms of Minnesota

About Open Arms of Minnesota

Open Arms of Minnesota is a nonprofit organization that prepares and delivers nourishing meals free of charge to critically ill Minnesotans and their loved ones. Our registered dietitians and in-house chefs create delicious, medically tailored menus using fresh and organic ingredients from our farms and urban gardens whenever possible.

We believe that people who are sick should not be without food. Yet, every day, our neighbors with life-threatening illnesses find themselves unable to shop or cook — and, often, without the support network to help. Through the support of a loving community of donors and volunteers, we harvest, cook, and deliver nutritious, made-from-scratch meals directly to our clients.

As neighbors feeding neighbors, we are committed to creating an inclusive community that celebrates life and honors dignity. We intentionally cultivate a joyful community where all members feel genuinely welcome and personally known. We are deeply connected in our work to achieve a common goal and engage in sharing ideas to enhance our collective efforts.

At Open Arms, we believe that food is medicine, and there’s always room for one more at our table. Come join us.
