    Please Help!
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    This morning, I was approached by a client that asked "How come we have no food in our food pantry?" We have been getting this question more and more as the holidays area approaching.  Somehow, hunger hurts more over the holidays.  We have been struggling to keep our pantry shelves stocked.  The demand for...

    Thank You!
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    Thank You!  thank you to those that continue to support our food pantry.   Over the course of the last 12 months, our food pantry has distributed over $28,000 worth of food and hygiene products to our HIV community.  If we had to put a retail price on how much food we distribute, that amount would likely...

    What can you buy for .18 cents?
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    Give it some thought: what CAN you buy for 18 cents?   Not much by my calculations.  Two pieces of Baooka, if they still sell it.  One and a half peppermint patty pieces.  A Twizzler.  That's what I came up with.   Our food pantry, however, can buy a pound of food or three pounds of beverages....

    The Cost of Food
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    How much do you grocery shop?  Do you pick up what you need with nothing extra?  Do you cut coupons to maximize your dollars?  Do you shop with no worries about how much your food costs?  That's a question we ask ourselves as we go to our local food bank to "stock" our food pantry.   Food prices in...

    Feast or Famine
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    In just over a month we will start our Holiday preparations.  Halloween will be over, Thanksgiving planning will begin and while that's happening, Christmas carols will already be playing in the mall, on the car radio and in our supermarkets. The carols will be playing in the three places our clients usually don't have...

    We grew a volunteer!
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    Many clients come to Francis House for different servcies.  Some come for the support groups, some for socialization, some for the meals we cook - but most every client that participates uses the food pantry. The food pantry, for some, was the initial draw to Francis House.  Once inside receiving their emergency...

    The Little Pantry that Could
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    In 2007, when we started thinking about startinga food pantry, we were concerned.  Concerned that the space we had was too small to feed the few clients that we had.  Concerned we wouldn't have the manpower or money to keep it stocked. No matter the concerns, we forged ahead with a donation from the USPS Letter...

    Are you Hungry?
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    "The images of a child's bloated belly or of a mother searching through garbage trying to find food are ones that have long haunted our world and that must be erased immediately. Hunger and malnutrition affect a vast majority of the people in the planet and many die every day from these preventable causes. It is time not to...

    Medication or Food?
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    Hunger and malnutrition are significant obstacles to the fight against HIV. The connection between food and HIV treatment is not an obvious one, but for the people of our community, this connection is vital to both lives and livelihoods. When high health care costs mean that a family can’t put food on the table, when...

    Charity or Justice?
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    What do you think of when you hear the word charity?  Do you think food - I didn't.... not until I began working with people who were truly hungry.  Hunger has always been an annoyance to me...  not a problem. The Francis House food pantry began in 2007 with a 10,000 pound donation of food through the US...

    Another one bites the dust
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    Just like that.  A group of people sitting in a room trying to figure out what programs to cut because of lack of funds.  First on the chopping block - Food. The drastic cut in area funding resulted in the largest Food program for the HIV/AIDS community here in Tampa Bay to close its doors on February 29,...

    What do you put on your fork?
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    Happy New Year!  What do you put on your fork?  For breakfast?  For Lunch? For Dinner?  It's a question many of us rarely ask ourselves.  It's a question our clients ask themselves every day.  The meals and pantry services that Francis House provide are essential in helping to keep our clients...

Francis House maintains one of the only food programs specifically designed to serve the HIV community.  The only other program is facing this 30% reduction in funding.  Once that happens, Francis House will...

    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    We still need your help!  Donations coming into our project have been slow.  The economic crisis, while getting better, is having a major impact on our ability to raise funds for this project. There is lots of competition out there from very worthwhile causes.  The impact of food on one's health and...

    First Project Report
    By - Joy Winheim - Executive Director
    We made it!  We did it!  We got to the benchmark or 50 different donors and $4,000.  It was hard, much harder than I expected.  As I watched the leader boards of other projects I often wondered if we were out of our league.  Francis House is a small non-profit that deals with HIV/AIDS.  In our...
