Opening our hearts to help local residents
Helping Project Open Hand to provide nutritious meals to the sick and vulnerable.
“Prior to COVID-19, we were preparing 2,500 nutritious meals and providing 200 bags of healthy groceries daily. Now, we need to increase our capacity. With Grosvenor’s help, we can expand delivery capacity, due to shelter-in-place orders that limit client mobility and require additional staffing rather than volunteers.” - Paul Hepfer, Chief Executive, Project Open Hand
Every day, Project Open Hand prepares meals and provides groceries to help sustain residents and nourish the community.
Following the shelter-in-place order, we placed $25K with Project Open Hand, which has helped get groceries to people living in San Francisco and Oakland who need them most.
Many of these people are battling the challenges that come from living in isolation; those who are most vulnerable and who would otherwise lack access to proper food supply.
The agency is seeking volunteers for their Community Nutrition Program, which serves meals to seniors and adults with disabilities at centers located across San Francisco.
