Riveria Beach Community Outreach
“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in.”
– Mother Theresa

OPEN HANDS OPEN HEART TO SERVE
Palm Beach County Food Bank
Through our partnership with the Palm Beach County Food Bank’s Nutrition Driven Classes, we are pleased to offer Nutrition Classes in conjunction with the University of Florida, Institute of Food, and Agricultural Sciences Extension (UF/IFAS). These classes aim to educate families about the long-term benefits of healthy eating and the impact of making poor eating choices that can lead to health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. In addition to learning how to follow a recipe, participants learn about different food resources available including food banks/food pantries and food stamps as well as the benefits of reading labels, all while learning how to have fun cooking.
Feeding South Florida
With the generous support of Feeding South Florida (FSF), The Open Hands Open Heart Choice Food Panty has served over 249,173 pounds of food to over 19,611 individuals throughout Palm Beach County.

To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.
