Medication or Food?

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 malnutrition means an HIV patient has a greater risk of dying or when not having enough to eat means experiencing intolerable side effects from treatment, food and nutrition can make the difference between life and death.

Our clients make these choices everyday.  Those choices make our food pantry an even greater tool in making sure they can meet their basic needs to fight the daily battle to live. When clients leave our facility with a bag full of food and a look of hope...it makes us fight to keep our pantry stocked.

Thank you to all of you that have donated to this project in an effort to help us reach our goals!
