Everyone knows what it's like to be very sick. You don't want to get out of bed, let alone cook a healthful meal for yourself--or your family.
Many of us also know someone who has gone through illnesses related to cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other life-challenging conditions. Taking care of yourself becomes even more difficult, especially if you lack financial resources or family support.
Personally, I know this too well. As a person living with AIDS, and a 25-year survivor of HIV, I have had times when I lacked the energy to prepare a healthful meal. Fortunately, I have family and friends who could carry me through those difficult times. But not everyone is as fortunate as I am.
That's why I participate in Moveable Feast's Ride for the Feast. All contributions to RFTF go to services for clients who are financially challenged, living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, or other chronic conditions, and in need of home-delivered, medically nutritious meals, transportation to medical appointments, and other basic human needs. When necessary, Moveable Feast also feeds the client's family, so that everyone in the home can be healthy and strong. I participate in RFTF to help those who haven't been as fortunate as I have been.
I hope you will join me in this important effort. This is Moveable Feast's 25th Anniversary--and my fifth year providing support and gear (SAG) services for the cyclists (300 this year!) as they make their way along the 140 mile route from Ocean City, MD, to Baltimore.
Your contribution can make a real difference in a person's life:
...$35 delivers nutritious meals to one person for one week
...$70 delivers nutritious meals to one person for two weeks
...$140 delivers nutritious meals to one person for an entire month
...$840 delivers nutritious meals to one person for six months
Thanks in advance for your support!
