Our Services

‘A Loving Spoonful’ was founded in 1989 in response to the impact of the AIDS epidemic on the health and nutritional status of those affected by the disease in our local community. The agency’s purpose has always been to improve the quality of life of individuals affected by HIV/AIDS by providing proper nutrition support.

As many as 80% of AIDS-related deaths are precipitated by malnutrition, and it is our belief as a society that by meeting this basic human need, we allow our clients to focus on the other challenges this disease poses.

Through a series of health and nutrition programs that are individually tailored to meet the specific needs of our varied client base, we aim to improve body weight, nutrition absorption, quality of life and – ultimately - independence and food security in a mutually respectful and empathetic environment.

The face of AIDS has changed drastically over the last 20 years, and ‘A Loving Spoonful’ has expanded and developed to meet these changes head on through improved funding, donor relations and program development.

 


A Loving Spoonful receives 77% of its funding from private donations and grants, rather than government funding.
