September 19, 2011 - (Vancouver) - The AIDS Vancouver Grocery program aims to address food security issues that our clients experience by providing over 16,000 supplemental grocery bags to approximately 1200 clients annually.
Nutrition is paramount for sustaining and prolonging the health and quality of life for those whose immune systems are compromised by the HIV virus.
Annually, the Grocery program must raise $150,000 to purchase food that is not funded. In kind donations from the Greater Vancouver Food Bank helps to keep this program running. We are incredibly grateful for this meaningful partnership.
Please visit our website www.aidsvancouver.org or call 604-696-4657 to help support the AIDS Vancouver Grocery Program.
With a very special thanks to the Vancouver Food Bank for their continued and generous support. We wouldn't be able to fill our shelves without your integral help.
The first AIDS service organization in Canada.
AIDS Vancouver was founded in 1983 as the first AIDS service organization in Canada. The agency was formed in response to an emerging disease that was starting to infect and affect local communities in Vancouver, specifically gay men. From our beginning, AIDS Vancouver evolved with the progression of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This evolution has made our service delivery and program development relevant and innovative today.
While setting standards for excellence in program and service delivery, we work with policy makers to address complex legal, ethical and socioeconomic issues. The principles of Health Promotion, Harm Reduction, Community Based Research, Community Development and Volunteerism guide and direct us.
For the past 25 years, AIDS Vancouver has been at the forefront of community response to the epidemic here in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Over 25 paid staff and 200 volunteers strive to provide a comprehensive and integrated range of health promotion, education, and support services.
