Founders Club

Open Hand is fortunate to have literally thousands of people who understand the importance of our work and who are passionate about our mission.  Each and every day more than 200 people give their time, energy and resources to prepare and deliver 4,500 meals.  In 2003, a handful of supporters blessed with the ability to do more, formed the Founders Club.  This exclusive group provides the unrestricted financial support necessary to continue building our capacity to provide Comprehensive Nutrition Care.
