Open Hand Meal Delivery

Saturday November 10 From 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM (NW Atlanta)

Open Hand helps homebound seniors and others suffering from disability or chronic disease by providing Comprehensive Nutrition Care™(CNC), a combination of nutritious, home-delivered meals, and nutrition education. Volunteer drivers are a critical part of the service Open Hand provides to the community, since a majority of the organization’s clients are homebound. In fact, a volunteer driver is quite often the only person a client may see on any given day. Volunteers will pick-up meals, deliver meals to clients using their own vehicles and gas, and return the delivery list and delivery bags back to the Open Hand site.

The festival is 100% volunteer managed and run Volunteers will be working at welcome centers, which sell chili spoons (“ticket” to festival), tokens for beer and mixed drinks, and festival T-shirts.
