Developing relationships with corporations
Developing relationships with corporations is an important strategy that helps A Loving Spoonful fulfill its mission and improve the lives of all people affected by HIV and co-existing illness.
Many people with a chronic illness live in circumstances not knowing if their next meal will be accessible. Our program staff and volunteers work with these individuals to ensure they can reduce barriers to food security, feel supported and work towards overall better health outcomes.
In addition to helping individuals and families coping with HIV to live healthy and productive lives, nutritional support helps over the long term with economic stability.
