Every food lover can engage with Open Hand through one of our special events!

It’s no coincidence that our signature events all revolve around food – food speaks to everyone, and it reminds us just how important it is to ensure that we continue to provide nutrition for all of our friends and neighbors who would otherwise go without.

With the incredible support of the Atlanta culinary community, including celebrated chefs Kevin Rathbun and Gerry Klaskala and our longtime Atlanta restaurant partners, Open Hand has been able to raise over $6 million through our special events over the past 25 years. What’s more, we’re especially proud to report that over 80% of every event dollar raised during that time has gone directly to meals and nutrition services for our clients.
