Market Basket Packing

Open Hand helps people prevent or better manage chronic disease through Comprehensive Nutrition Care, which combines home-delivered meals and nutrition education as a means to reinforce the connection between informed food choices and improved quality of life.

*NOTE: If you are signing up to complete pre-court or court ordered community service hours, please contact Volunteer Services at (404) 872-2707 prior to scheduling your volunteer opportunity. If you do not speak with an Open Hand representative prior to volunteering for pre-court or court ordered community service hours, you may not get credit for any hours served.

Our Market Baskets provides a weekly supply of groceries to low-income, medically-eligible clients who have the ability to prepare their own meals, but who do not have the strength or income to purchase their own groceries. Volunteers will work as a team to place nonperishable items and fresh produce into grocery bags.

This event will take place in a climate-controlled warehouse. Close-toed shoes are required.
