World AIDS Day 2013 Food Drive

December 1, 2013


On December 1, 2013 (World AIDS Day), APLA will initiate a massive countywide food drive to secure donations of non-perishable food and personal hygiene items for persons living with HIV/AIDS.

Proper nutrition is so important to the health and well-being of people living with HIV/AIDS. But many thousands of APLA clients struggle to manage a complicated and chronic disease while facing desperate poverty and hunger that even the most hopeful economic recovery will not improve. The Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP) operates 9 food pantries across Los Angeles County (Santa Monica, Lancaster, North Hollywood, Mid-Wilshire, South LA, Long Beach, Pomona, Claremont and Pasadena), where people with HIV/AIDS are able to bring home the equivalent of four bags of groceries every single week at no charge.

Donations collected at the food drive will help supplement the food and personal hygiene provided to the clients who visit the food pantries every week. Download this list here.

On December 1st, items may be dropped off at one of the various locations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Individuals and groups are also encouraged to conduct their own food drives in the weeks leading up to and after December 1st.
