04 Oct Gratus Team packs 1,912 meals for those in need through Open Hand Atlanta
Volunteering not only strengthens our team, it strengthens the community we serve. Our team spent the morning at Open Hand, a nonprofit organization that offers home delivered meals and nutrition education as a means to “reinforce the connection between informed food choices and improved quality of life.” We broke out the hair nets, aprons, and gloves to prepare 1,820 pounds of food and pack 1,912 meals for distribution to individuals, Health Clinics, Senior Homes, and Special Needs Housing in the Atlanta area.
Open Hand packs and delivers over 5,000 meals every day and greatly depends on the work of their volunteers. Their dedicated staff and vibrant kitchen facility make it a unique and rewarding experience for everyone.
