Open Heart Kitchen is the largest hot meal program of its kind in the Tri-Valley Area. Founded in 1995 as a small, grassroots effort to address hunger in the Tri-Valley, Open Heart Kitchen serves meals at multiple locations in Dublin, Livermore and Pleasanton, California. There is no qualifying process and meals may be eaten at our multiple serving sites or taken to go. We work in cooperation with local food pantries and various Tri-Valley nonprofits whose missions promote nutrition and hunger relief.
We serve people in need through three meal programs: the hot meal program, the senior meal program, and the children’s weekend bag lunch program. Guests come from all walks of life and Open Heart Kitchen has become a safety net to those in need during challenging times. Last year, Open Heart Kitchen served more than 335,000 meals to those who needed it.
