Our History

We started as friends caring for friends, and that’s who we still are today. We began in 1988, when a small group of friends gathered to cook meals for their neighbors and loved ones disenfranchised by HIV/AIDS. Since then, guided by a mission of compassion and service, our organization has expanded to meet the needs in the community to provide health-promoting food directly to the homes of people who need it.



Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved in our mission, from volunteering, donating, attending one of our events, and more!

Staff Directory

It takes a village to ensure our neighbors are receiving the love, dignity, and nutrition they need: meet the team that makes it happen.
