Feed 500 members of Tampa's HIV/AIDS Community



HIV and nutrition are intimately linked. HIV infection can lead to malnutrition, while poor diet can speed the disease’s progress. Clients served are at or below 150% of the poverty level.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The population served by FH reflects the current Hillsborough County HIV/AIDS epidemic population, with approximately 52% of clients being black, 23% white and 25% Hispanic. Blacks comprise approximately 15% of the population in Hillsborough County yet represent 48% of the total adult population living with HIV/AIDS in the county. As economic conditions continue to deteriorate, more clients rely on our program to help them meet their basic nutritional needs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our food pantry program provides food, nutrtional supplements, hygiene items and food vouchers to individuals and familes infected with HIV/AIDS. The food received through this program also enables clients meet other life sustaining needs.

Potential Long Term Impact

over 2,500 individuals will gain access to food, hygiene items and nutritional supplements allowing them to maintain a healthy diet. This will help their medications work properly and slow down the progression of the disease on their bodies.
