Give thanks and give back to our community this holiday season by joining your fellow Cornellians and volunteering 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.

Please arrive on time so we can start our shift promptly at 9:30 am. 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. Current students and 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)
