Why Volunteer

Why Volunteer?

At Open Hand, people from all walks of life come together to touch the lives of thousands of others who are not as fortunate. Our volunteers have a lot of fun in the process due to our wonderful food service staff as well as other remarkable volunteers that make them feel as though they are among friends. Without the dedication of each and every one of these incredible people, we simply could not do our very necessary work in our community.

We have both individual and group opportunities available. We're always in need of volunteer drivers to deliver our meals directly to the doorsteps of our clients, and assistance packing meals in the Open Hand kitchen!

Questions? Feel free to contact the Volunteer Services team at volunteerservices@openhandatlanta.org or 678-306-6649.
