Moveable Feast was established in the 80’s as a way to help patients diagnosed with HIV/AIDS get the meals they needed to help with their illness in Baltimore during a time when the virus was not only deadly, but patients were shunned and ignored. The non profit has evolved over the decades to include a broader range of chronic illnesses and continues to feed under insured patients in Baltimore/the Eastern Shore of the state. The non profit is a member of the Food is Medicine Coalition (FIMC) and recently received a portion of a gift that will help it meet increased demand to deliver medically tailored meals to patients suffering from kidney failure. The donation, from Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), will also help ensure the long-term and expanded growth of FIMC, and its mission to advocate for policy that supports access to these specialized meals. Executive Director Sue Elias talks about who they deliver meals to, how their in house food production and distribution has been affected by the pandemic and how you can help with their annual fundraiser Dining/Taking Out For Life.
