Description

Come volunteer with Imperfect in a collaboration with Project Open Hand! Join other Imperfect customers and fellow food-waste warriors as we join forces with Project Open Hand to create some beautiful and delicious food out of ugly and unwanted produce!

Volunteers at this event will work alongside Imperfect employees to transform some of our own Imperfect produce into wholesome, healthy meals. The meals will be distributed to our local community here in San Francisco — specifically seniors and individuals with debilitating illnesses.

Volunteers will help clean, cut and peel fruits and vegetables but no prior kitchen prep experience is necessary!

About Project Open Hand: “Project Open Hand was founded in San Francisco in 1985 at a time when the city found itself at ground zero of a the AIDS epidemic. While many felt helpless as they witnessed the disease claim friends, a retired food services worker named Ruth Brinker felt something needed to be done. Ruth prepared meals with love in her kitchen and delivered them to seven neighbors with AIDS who were far too ill to cook for themselves. Today, Project Open Hand has expanded its services beyond AIDS/HIV to include serving those with critical illnesses such as breast cancer, diabetes as well as seniors fighting hunger. Ruth’s vision of “meals with love” is still alive today and remains the motivating force behind all that Project Open Hand does as helping hands for the critically ill and elderly.”

Note:

Project Open Hand depends on volunteers each and every day to prepare meals. Please sign up only if you are certain that you can attend! Thank you so much for your willingness to donate your time.
