Open Heart Kitchen Seeks Board Members

Hot meal program in Tri Valley seeks board members.

Here's an announcement provided by Open Heart Kitchen:

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 Joan Tiefenthaler. “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 200,000 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.

To apply, please complete an application, available at www.openheartkitchen.org and email it to nrichardson@openheartkitchen.org. For more information on OHK, please contact Open Heart Kitchen Executive Director Linda McKeever at executivedirector@openheartkitchen.org or call 925-580-1616.

Hi, the Board meets once per month, on the third Thursday at 8 am at Ridge View Commons Library, 5200 Case Avenue, Pleasanton CA. Board Meetings generally last slightly more than an hour. It is expected that all Board Members attend the majority of Board Meetings. Board Members are expected to participate in one or more committees as well.

"Open Heart Kitchen (OHK), the only hot meal program in the Tri-Valley area" Uh... no, it is NOT the only hot meal program. Cornerstone Church has been running the one at Vineyard Christian Fellowship on Mondays for years in cooperation with such churches as Cedar Grove.
