As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have not yet re-started.
However, Cornell NorCal continues to present a robust calendar of virtual events on a monthly basis. Additionally, we are cross-posting highlighted events from other Cornell clubs on our page below.
Please check back in here, find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/CornellNorCal/), or sign up for our newsletter to get regular updates on upcoming events.

Join fellow Cornell Alumni to volunteer at Project Open Hand in San Francisco. 

Project Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides meals with love to critically ill neighbors and seniors. Every day, Project Open Hand prepares 2,500 nutritious meals and provides 200 bags of healthy groceries to help sustain clients as they battle serious illnesses, isolation, or health challenges of aging.

We will be volunteering in either the Grocery Center or Kitchen. Grocery Center tasks may include sorting, bagging, culling food items, or stocking the Grocery Center shelves. Kitchen volunteers slice and dice whole food and help assemble meal packages. Families are welcome to volunteer! However please note that all volunteers must be 15 years or older.

Important Information

All volunteers must follow Project Open Hand's dress code:

  • Closed-toe shoes
  • Shirts with sleeves (no tank tops)
  • Full length pants (no shorts/capris/ skirts, etc.)
  • Hats are also welcomed for volunteers who prefer not to wear hairnets
Please contact Catherine Meng, '09 with any questions.
