Open Heart Kitchen (OHK), the only hot meal program in the Tri-Valley area, is seeking several board members to support the organization’s efforts to feed the hungry in the region.
Applicants should have a passion for Open Heart Kitchen’s mission to feed the hungry and the desire to dedicate their time and talents towards that effort. The Director term of office is two years and Directors may renew their term for subsequent two-year terms, not to exceed a maximum of four terms or eight years.
“Board directors play a very pivotal role at Open Heart Kitchen and can become integrally involved in making a big difference in the success of the program,” according to Open Heart Kitchen Board President Ted Monk. “We are hoping to further expand the broad scope of talent on our Board and encourage interested parties to apply,” she adds.

Open Heart Kitchen feeds the hungry every weekday as an interfaith effort, and serves more than 260,000 meals annually. There is no qualifying process to receive meals. Meals can be eaten at OHK’s multiple serving sites, or taken to go. OHK works in cooperation with the Alameda County Community Food Bank, more than a dozen local food pantries, and various Tri-Valley non-profits with missions to promote nutrition and hunger relief.
