Help us feed the hungry this Holiday Season.
Right now in the Tri-Valley 26,000 of our neighbors are battling food insecurity. Hunger is impacting our community in greater numbers than ever before and we need your help to make a difference.
For most of us, the holidays are a time of joy – a chance to spend time with family, give thanks, and make memories together around the dinner table. But for some the holidays are a reminder of all the things they can’t afford. There are those in our community who are simply trying to figure out how they’ll feed their families.

Holiday 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 food drive boxes and allows Open Heart Kitchen to save on resources and get the most-needed items for our meal preparation. This Holiday Season, Open Heart Kitchen is raising vital funds through this team-based, online crowdfunding effort.

While our preference is your donation to our virtual food drive, which gives us the ability to buy exactly what we need each week and typically at a bulk price discount, we welcome small food donations.
