Thanks to the generosity of our community, Mama’s Kitchen continues to fill a need in our community by providing free, nutritious meals to men, women and children who are affected by AIDS or cancer. We offer a variety of meal plans to meet our clients’ nutritional requirements, and our meals are lovingly prepared and hand-delivered by hundreds of dedicated volunteers. Mama’s Pantry Service provides a free once-a-month shopping opportunity for low-income HIV-positive individuals, to help them add nutrition to their diet and stretch their budget.
