Open Arms of Minnesota prepares and delivers medically tailored meals to people with life-threatening illnesses free of charge.

To grow the nonprofit’s program and strengthen services, Open Arms expanded to a second campus at Runway 52 near Holman Field in St. Paul, Minnesota. The 1980s office building was strategically transformed to support their volunteer meal preparation and delivery program. The 13,550 sq. ft. space pulls inspiration from Open Arms’ mission, history, and existing campus to create a functional, welcoming facility for volunteers and clients.

The transformation features a large volunteer area, 5,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art commercial kitchen with hot and cold prep lines, massive walk-in freezer storing 60,000 meals, blast
freezers, training room, open office, warehouse, shipping, and truck delivery area. This location doubles Open Arms’ meal storage capacity and increases their production by 30%.
