Developing relationships with corporations is an important strategy that helps A Loving Spoonful fulfill its mission to improve the lives of all people affected by HIV/AIDS. These relationships offer enormous opportunities to connect with people who have AIDS.
Many people with AIDS live in circumstances that do not allow them to assume their next meal will be accessible. Our program staff and volunteers work with these individuals to ensure they can improve their adherence rates and thus benefit from them.
In addition to helping individuals and families coping with AIDS to live healthy and productive lives, nutritional support helps the communities where they live.
