Improving Lives One Meal at a Time

Living in a South Georgia community devastated by the health and economic impacts of the last year and a half, Mario appeared destined to continue his struggle with diabetes and high blood pressure. That is until our partner, Barnes Healthcare Services, enrolled him in Open Hand Atlanta's six week, evidence-based Cooking Matters and Produce Prescription programs.

"They taught me how to live better," Mario says proudly. In a matter of weeks, his physician saw marked improvements in Mario's blood sugar, blood pressure, and even his eyesight.

With your support, Open Hand Atlanta continues to use food as medicine and be a lifeline for our vulnerable, underserved friends and neighbors like Mario. Our medically-tailored meal and education interventions address nutrition insecurity and improve the health of our community. Make a gift today, and help support this essential life-saving work.
