On September 24, Dine IN to support The Town!

Last year, we asked Oakland restaurants to support Project Open Hand by donating a portion of their proceeds to our agency. This year, we recognize that COVID-19 has hit the restaurant and bar industry hard, leading many to reduce their operations or close their doors altogether. Because of this, we are not asking for donations from participating restaurants. We want to lend them a hand during this difficult time by encouraging diners to order from their menus and support their business.

Project Open Hand has called Oakland “home” since the day of the Loma Prieta Earquake in 1989. Back then, we fed the Oakland community alongside our own HIV/AIDS clients in the wake of a natural disaster. In 2020, we want to extend our support to the community during an international pandemic. We ask that you help us accomplish this by Dining IN with us on September 24.

How to participate:

1. Purchase takeout or a gift card from one of our restaurant partners and enjoy your meal solo, with your family, or as part of a socially-distant dinner party.

2. Visit http://p2p.onecause.com/dofloak to make a donation to Project Open Hand and help us provide life-saving meals to those living with HIV/AIDS.

* Post a photo of your meal to your social media pages with the hashtag #DOFLOaklandContest on or before Sept. 24 to be entered into a drawing for a gift bag filled with cooking gear, POH swag, and $100 worth of restaurant gift cards. Make sure to tag the restaurant partner you ordered from and @ProjectOpenHand in your post. Then tune in to Project Open Hand’s Facebook or Instagram account for a live drawing of the contest winner on Sept. 25 at 3pm PST.

“Project Open Hand food is consistent. It is someone else saying, ‘You’re worth being on this planet, and you’re supported.’ We need to take care of each other.” ~Michael “Kitten”
