About Moveable Feast
Imagine, for a moment, that today you found out you were HIV positive or had breast cancer. What would you do first? Who would you tell? Where would you turn for help?
Now try to imagine how you would cope if you were also on disability, supporting a family or partner, suffering the ravages of chemotherapy or cocktail therapy, and unable to earn a paycheck. Or maybe you are completely on your own with no one to help you out on those inevitable difficult days. Nobody should have to deal with all of that alone.
People with AIDS and other life-challenging conditions often become caught in a vicious cycle of poor appetite and physical weakness that prevents them from providing adequate meals for themselves.
They suffer from severe illnesses that limit their physical activity; low income and high health care costs, and isolation from their support network during the work day.
Severe malnutrition can be a life-threatening condition, can lead to 'wasting syndrome,' and is a frequent cause of hospitalization for People Living With HIV/AIDS.
That's why we're here - to help. Moveable Feast provides nutritious meals and other services at no cost to people who are sick and need our support.
