Part of a good continuum of care program for HIV and AIDS clients at NO/AIDS Task Force is making accessible healthy, nutritious, and tasty meals and grocery choices.  Often clients do not have the resources or the ability to buy groceries or prepare nutritious meals for themselves.

The Food For Friends (FFF) Program of NO/AIDS Task Force has been supplying groceries, household/personal care products, and Home Delivered Meals to clients and their families in the greater New Orleans area for over two decades.  FFF is one of the 38 programs that NO/AIDS Task Force offers to the HIV and AIDS infected and affected community.  NO/AIDS has been serving the community for over 30 years.

Pantry

The pantry is located at the 1631 Elysian Fields location.  This allows easy access for clients when they come to NO/AIDS for clinic and other services.  Clients shop the pantry and select their choices of groceries, household products, and personal care items.  Hundreds of clients come to the pantry monthly and select 40 pounds of groceries, personal care, and household items.  In 2013 the pantry distributed over 180,000 pounds of product to clients and their families in need.

 Home Delivered Meals

The Home Delivered Meals Program began service out of a small kitchen at Project Lazarus, New Orleans, over 20 years ago.  The new FFF kitchen was opened at First Unitarian Universalist Church of New Orleans in October of 2013.  First Church and Food For Friends will now be able to expand food services to the greater community.

“We are so thrilled to have a kitchen again where we can provide nutritionally sound meals to people affected by HIV.  The complexities of HIV disease, along with the variety of medication therapies and numerous co-infections that come along with it, it’s important that we are able to have our own kitchen where a chef and nutritionist can ensure that clients have access to not just food, but meals tailored to their nutritional needs,” said Noel Twilbeck, CEO of NO/AIDS Task Force.

Five AIDS Service Organizations in the region refer eligible HIV positive clients to FFF for pantry and home delivered meal service.  The pantry is accessed once a month and home delivered meals are delivered weekly to the client’s home.  For information on eligibility and accessing the pantry and home delivered meals you can call 504-821-2601 and ask for case management.

Food For Friends  is always grateful for any monetary, food, or product donations and volunteers anxious to help.
