Emergency Meals Fund

About This Campaign

To help meet increased demand as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, we have ramped up production of our Emergency Meals. We will be delivering larger quantities of these meals to clients to limit the number of deliveries our clients receive each week, while ensuring that they don’t go without a single meal. We have an obligation to be prepared for worst case scenarios. Ramping up production in this manner has resulted in increased expenses such as overtime labor and the rental of several large, commercial freezer trailers to store the additional frozen meals that are being produced. Additionally, as logistical issues and higher demand have adversely affected the supply of food, we are experiencing increases in our food cost.

All of these things of course mean unforeseen and unbudgeted costs incurred for Open Hand. Your donation will go a long way in alleviating the immediate burden of these increased costs and ensure that there is much less chance of disruption in our service. Our priority is the health and safety of our clients and making sure that they have what they need to make it through the coming weeks.
