OPEN HAND ATLANTA

Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides Comprehensive Nutrition Care for a diverse population of men, women and children with unique nutrition needs.  Our programs and services are designed to help clients meet their personal goals and objectives for good health and to assist clients and healthcare providers in the early identification and treatment, as well as the prevention or progression of many nutrition-sensitive illnesses.

It's about more than a meal.

It’s about doing the right thing.  Because many of our friends and neighbors cannot afford proper nutrition, some are too sick to prepare their own meals, and thousands of others are at risk for chronic disease simply because of their diets.

With your support and the passion of thousands of inspired volunteers, Open Hand will continue to nourish thousands of our friends and neighbors who are homebound, disabled, or too sick to prepare their own meals. No matter their age. No matter where they live. No matter their medical condition.

Mission
Open Hand helps people prevent or better manage chronic disease through Comprehensive Nutrition Care™, which combines home-delivered meals and nutrition education as a means to reinforce the connection between informed food choices and improved quality of life.

Vision
Open Hand seeks to eliminate disability and untimely death due to nutrition-sensitive chronic disease.

Purpose
To serve our community by empowering people to live healthier, more productive lives.

Core Values

We put our mission first.

We are passionate about building a healthier community.  Through people-centered services and partnerships, we create access to healthy meals and nutrition education, empowering our clients and the community to achieve personal goals for health and wellness.

Another case in point is Open Hand’s social entrepreneurship, Good Measure Meals™ (GMM). A gourmet meal program which is both calorie- and portion-controlled, GMM meetsthe dietary needs of people with diabetes and related hypertension and is also ideal for people of means looking for a convenient and delicious way to manage their weight. Operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary, GMM not only directs 100% of its net proceeds back to Open Hand, but helps us extend our Comprehensive Nutrition Care™ model across the full socio-economic spectrum, ultimately enabling us to make an even greater impact on the quality of health in our community.
