    The 22nd annual Hand to Hand Luncheon, a benefit for Project Open Hand, will take place at 11 AM on December 12 at The Fairmont in San Francisco. The benefit will help the organization to provide free meals- presented with compassion and care- to some of the neediest individuals in our community.

    Hannah Schmunk, Director of Special Events, told the Bay Times, “Project Open Hand’s Hand to Hand Luncheon is a celebration of the incredible culinary talent in the Bay Area. But beyond the decadent food that is enjoyed, it’s a time to think of the individuals who are not sitting at the table, those for whom every meal is precious and sustaining, those who depend on Project Open Hand for their daily nourishment. So we invite you to sit at the Hand to Hand table. As we enjoy an exceptional meal together, we’ll enable Project Open Hand to provide meals with love to the sick and elderly in our community.”

    Here we present some of the talented local chefs who will be preparing desserts and other dishes for the luncheon. We hope to entice you to attend and to help support Project Open Hand’s important work. For more information, please visit:
