I had the opportunity to volunteer for Project Open Hand while studying at Columbia College Chicago. I met a wonderful group of individuals and provided meals for people in need. While there, I was able to photograph some of the process that this non-profit carries out everyday. Learn more below, and check out some of the images from that day.  

Founded in 1985, Project Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides meals with love to critically ill neighbors and seniors. Our food is like medicine, helping clients recover from illness, get stronger, and lead healthier lives.

Every day, 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 the health challenges of aging. Open Hand serves San Francisco and Alameda Counties, engaging more than 125 volunteers every day to nourish our community.
