CulinaryLocal team members this past weekend helped deliver meals to dozens of people with Project Open Hand. The team contributed to creating and delivering over 5,500 meals to needy people. This project was just an example of how CulinaryLocal gives back to the community.

What is Project Open Hand?

Project Open Hand was started over 20 years ago with the mission to aid people with prevention or better manage chronic disease through Comprehensive Nutrition Care™. This program combines home-delivered meals and nutrition education as a means to reinforce the connection between informed food choices and improved quality of life.

The Comprehensive Nutrition Care service product includes:  health-promoting meals formulated for disease management and prevention; a creative “tool box” of nutrition and health education options including web-based, telephonic, group information sharing and interactive self-management support sessions; and Medical Nutrition Therapy, which is provided by registered dietitians to individuals with medical diagnoses who are referred by a primary care provider.

Open Hand, an innovative agency with 20 years of experience providing high-quality nourishing meals to the Atlanta community, is uniquely qualified to execute this pioneering service.

Who does it help?

Open Hand offers several different meal programs targeting low-income, medically-eligible people. These programs address the needs of particular diseases and needs of their clients.

Where do they deliver?

Open Hand Atlanta has volunteer drivers deliver within the metro Atlanta area; however, it has partnered with delivery services to clients outside Atlanta in Georgia.
