We invite you to join us on Thursday, April 25, to dine out and give back. Each Dining Out for Life Oakland restaurant partner will donate a generous portion of their proceeds from this one special day of dining towards Project Open Hand.

All money raised by your dining experience makes a local impact, benefiting the sick and vulnerable throughout our Oakland community. 

For over 30 years in Oakland, we have created a loving and supportive community to ensure that our neighbors with HIV/AIDS have access to healthy food and essential nutrition resources. Our mission is to improve health outcomes and quality of life for the critically-ill by providing nutritious meals prepared and delivered with love by our dedicated staff and volunteers. As a national pioneer in the food is medicine movement, our research proves that the health of our clients improves with our nutrition intervention that includes medically tailored meals, medical engagement, and nutrition counseling.

Every guest who Dines Out or donates to our campaign will be entered for a chance to win our Oaktown Raffle Package. This package includes exciting prizes such as one month of unlimited Aerial Classes with Skyhigh Odditorium, a Family Day Pass to the Oakland Zoo, a boozy art class for two at Wine & Design Oakland, a family membership to the Oakland Museum of California, gift cards to your favorite Oakland restaurants, plus more!

Win a Round-Trip Airline Ticket! When you sign-up as a VIP Ambassador, you are automatically in the running to win a round-trip airline ticket to any destination in the United States including Puerto Rico.
How do you win? Raise the most money in support of Project Open Hand between now and May 2 and the airline ticket is yours!
