The San Francisco-based nonprofit Project Open Hand has been providing free food delivery services to thousands of sick patients in California, helping those who are battling HIV, chronic illnesses, diabetes, kidney failures and even delivering to persons with disabilities.

California recently awarded the organization, and five others, $6M from the state budget for 2017-2018 for a pilot program to help the state’s low-income patients across San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland.
