June 7, 2018: Dining Out for Life

On Thursday, June 07, kick off New Orleans Pride by doing what we do best in New Orleans – going out to eat with your friends and family. What could be easier than Dining Out For Life to help raise money for the programs and services of NO/AIDS Task Force?

This year, dozens of the area’s best restaurants will donate a portion of their proceeds to NO/AIDS Task Force. All you have to do is dine at one of the participating restaurants and you will be helping those affected by HIV and AIDS in our community.

Poppy Tooker

Once again, our friend Poppy Tooker (Champion of Louisiana’s culinary customs, cookbook author, and host of the NPR-affiliated “Louisiana Eats.”) is joining us as Honorary Chair of Dining Out For Life New Orleans. Poppy invites you to make a day of it! Start with coffee in the Marigny, lunch uptown, a late afternoon snack on Freret, dinner in the French Quarter… and a quick trip to Mid-City for dessert!

For over 30 years, NO/AIDS Task Force has been providing hope, care and compassion to thousands of men, women and families affected by HIV & AIDS in Southeast Louisiana. The Task Force acknowledges that the complications of HIV disease are not just physical, but mental, emotional, and social as well. That is why our agency offers a full spectrum of care at low to no cost, including services such as: an HIV medical clinic, food pantry, home delivered meals, housing, mental health, medications, and many others. NO/AIDS also remains committed to the health of our entire community and reaches over 20,000 each year through HIV prevention education efforts.
