In an effort to avoid contamination during the COVID-19 situation,  we are not accepting donations of food from the public during this time. If you would still like to support our work we suggest making a monetary donation. We thank you for your support.  

Host a Virtual Food Drive

An easy way to provide the most food, right from your computer. Hosting a virtual food drive saves you the hassle of moving heavy boxes, and allows Open Heart Kitchen to save on resources and get the most-needed items for our meal preparation. Let us use our ability to purchase the food we need in bulk to maximize the impact of your donation.
