Dining Out for Life is Wednesday, April 20, 2016!

The Atlanta restaurant community stepped up again big time!

Thank you to all of our Dining Out for Life restaurants for not only supporting Open Hand, but for helping us engage the community in our mission.

We have seen a surge in the number of volunteers who first became aware of our work during Dining Out for Life...and so far our average donation per restaurant is higher than ever! We couldn't be more thankful!


Please remember to support the restaurants that support OH!

Since 1993, participating Atlanta-area restaurants have raised nearly $3 million in support  of Open Hand meals and nutrition programs, provided free of charge to our underserved homebound and chronically ill friends and neighbors.


Welcome & thank you to our new participating restaurants!

We couldn't do it without our Dining Out For Life volunteers!

In 2014, our volunteers raised more than $37,000 in additional donations to support OH community nutrition programs! Thank you for supporting our restaurants and for making us proud! 2015 numbers will be posted soon!


It takes more than 100 volunteers to make Dining Out for Life a success. Many of our volunteers have so much fun, they come back year after year...but we can never have enough volunteers!

A special thank you to our top 3 volunteers in 2014:

Will Gosnell | Ecco | $1765 raised!
Tom Merandi | Roxx | $1615 raised!
John Kraus | Pasta da Pulcinella | $1235 raised!
