Mission & Overview


Open Heart Kitchen serves prepared, nutritious meals free of charge to the hungry people of the Tri-Valley area.


Open Heart Kitchen is the largest hot meal program of its kind in the Tri­-Valley Area of Northern California. We feed the hungry 7 days a week across multiple locations in Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin. There is no qualifying process and meals may be eaten at our serving sites or taken to go.

Founded in 1995 as an interfaith effort, Open Heart Kitchen serves more than 330,000 meals annually.

Our guests come from all walks of life: We’re here to help our Neighbors in Need during challenging times. Open Heart Kitchen serves as their safety net.

We work in cooperation with more than a dozen local food pantries and various Tri-­Valley non-­profits whose missions promote nutrition and hunger relief.
