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. Funds will support the purchase of equipment for Open Heart Kitchen’s Tri-Valley Food Hub to help redistribute donated produce and surplus fresh/frozen groceries from the Alameda County Community Food Bank and other local food service providers. The Food Hub will be their central location of operations for the redistribution of donated food. This new program will increase the use of donated surplus edible food and funds will help purchase needed equipment such as thermal pallet covers, thermal blankets, tote boxes, vented agricultural crates, and milk crates.
