What we do.

Open Heart Kitchen is the largest hot meal program of its kind in the Tri­-Valley Area of Northern California, feeding the hungry across multiple locations in Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin. There is no qualifying process and meals may be eaten at numerous serving sites or taken to go. Guests come from all walks of life and Open Heart Kitchen has become a safety net to those in need during challenging times. Last year, Open Heart Kitchen served more than 2 million meals to those who needed it.
Please join us for the Heart of the Tri-Valley Gala on Friday, September 8th, 2023 at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton. Don’t miss the most glamorous party of the year! Enjoy fine dining, live music, exciting auctions, and more, all with the magic of old Hollywood. This is our chance to celebrate the work that we have accomplished, and look ahead to upcoming opportunities to better serve our community together. The evening won’t be the same without you – see you then! 
Individual tickets and early bird pricing for tables of ten are available here
