AIDS Vancouver Grocery Program
Thanks
The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation

March 21, 2014 - A big thank you to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation! Thank you for your support!

The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation is proud to support the AIDS Vancouver Grocery Program, which serves 1200 HIV positive, low-income individuals and their 238 children by providing supplemental groceries all year long, at no cost to them.

AIDS Vancouver believes it provides a dignified and, most important, safe environment in which its patrons have access to vitally nutritious foods without having to face stigma and ridicule.

The unique grocery store set up allows clients to have a shopping experience. Patrons are invited in with a basket and they go around to each shelf and choose their items. The Grocery provides fresh milk & produce, protein items, cereal, canned goods and hygiene items, two weeks per month. It is run by one staff person and 15 volunteers. Some of these volunteers are clients themselves and contribute thousands of hours every year.

The program needs to raise $300,000.00 each year (including in-kind donations) to keep the shelves stocked. For more information visit: www.aidsvancouver.org
