At this time of year, when we traditionally gather to give thanks for our blessings, GMHC is hosting a private cocktail event, Thanks & Giving, to support our many services, particularly those that alleviate hunger for those living with HIV and AIDS. This event will feature an open bar and prizes, as well as live music by renowned DJ Kevin Graves.

While proper meals and nutrition are important for our well-being, they are critical for those on HIV medication.  Our Congregate Meals Program has been a hallmark of our commitment to meeting the nutritional needs of people living with HIV and AIDS, and we continue to serve over 300 meals per day to our clients, year-round. In addition, the Keith Haring Food Pantry Program complements this vital service which has made a difference to hundreds of thousands of people living with HIV and AIDS over the years.

Because 78% of our clients are living below the poverty threshold, they struggle with limited resources.  We believe our clients should not have to choose between medication and meals

In addition to the devastating effects of sequestration, GMHC was advised of cuts to our Ryan White funding.  Because these funds have traditionally supported our food programs and other vital services, they threaten our ability to continue to serve our clients. The impact of decreased funding includes:

  • A reduction in the amount of food per grocery bag in our pantry program.
  • A one-serving limit on meals we serve Monday through Friday.  For many of our clients, this is their only meal of the day.
