South Georgia has been devastated by the health and economic impacts of the pandemic, but with the help of our healthcare partner we’ve been able to enroll people like Mario in Open Hand’s six-week, evidence-based Cooking Matters and Produce Prescription program.
Mario, who struggled with diabetes and high blood pressure, saw marked improvements in his blood sugar and blood pressure in just a few short weeks. In fact, after learning the skills he needed to cook delicious, affordable, and nutritious meals through Cooking Matters, even his eyesight improved.
With your support, Open Hand Atlanta continues to be a lifeline for our vulnerable, underserved friends and neighbors like Mario. Make a gift today to help provide our essential, life-changing medically-tailored meals and nutrition education interventions across Georgia to people like Mario.
