THE STORY:

Wendy Anderson-Applegren wrote -

The Long Beach AIDS Food Store has been feeding those affected by AIDS for 25 years. We provide groceries, meals and friendship to our clients. We gratefully accept donations of food, money and time.

Our clients are referred to us through many social services and governmental agencies. We ask for confirmation of diagnosis from a doctor, and that clients subsist on an income of $1500.00 a month or less.

AIDS Food Store relies on agencies, foundations, groups, churches, businesses and individuals to assist with ongoing donations of food, supplies and financial support. We receive no government funding and have no paid administration.

On the second and fourth Saturday of the month, clients are given a standard bag of staples selected for balanced nutrition. They then have the opportunity to select from a variety of other foods, including fresh fruits, vegetables, pastries, breads, meat and dairy products. We approach this from a non-institutional perspective, at absolutely no cost to the client.

Today, AIDS Food Store is the longest serving HIV/AIDS food provider in Southern California.
