It’s that time of year again – Cornell Cares Day! Cornell Cares Day is a worldwide student and alumni service event that connects Cornellians to serve in their local community through direct, hands-on service projects as they swap stories and network. In San Francisco, join your fellow Cornellians as we volunteer at Project Open Hand.

Project Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides meals with love to critically ill neighbors and seniors. Every day, Project Open Hand prepares 2,500 nutritious meals and provides 200 bags of healthy groceries to help sustain clients as they battle serious illnesses, isolation, or health challenges of aging.

Please arrive on time so we can start our shift promptly at 9:30 am. We will be volunteering in either the Grocery Center or Kitchen. Grocery Center tasks may include sorting, bagging, culling food items, or stocking the Grocery Center shelves. Kitchen volunteers slice and dice whole food and help assemble meal packages. Current students and families are welcome to volunteer! However please note that all volunteers must be 15 years or older.

All volunteers must follow Project Open Hand’s dress code:
•Closed-toe shoes
•Shirts with sleeves (no tank tops)
•Full length pants (no shorts/capris/ skirts, etc.)
