Review for Open Arms of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering for Open Arms for the past five years first in the building on Franklin Avenue near the Indian center and now in the beautiful state of the art building on Bloomington and 25th in Minneapolis. I volunteer twice a week- once cooking soup(chopping onions, celery, kale, cucumbers-you name it we do the prep work. I have never laughted so hard anywhere-I leave full of good cheer, having spent time with the best chefs in the world and a treasure full of volunteers-from all over the community. On Sunday I bring a teenager and we pack soup and I get to visit with a great group of college kids and cassie and Sarah who are the best directors of traffic you can imagine.
This is the place to come when you need a boost to your spirits and you will be quaranteed a hug from all sorts of folks.
And Open Arms is now partnered with an Organic Farm in Belle Plaine and I weeded on the farm this past summer. The farm provided 20,000 lbs of produce and our clients were thrilled with farm fresh everything!
