APLA World AIDS Day Food DriveFor World AIDS Day 2014, APLA will conduct a massive food drive activating constituents all over LA County to donate non-perishable food items and personal hygiene items to persons living with HIV/AIDS. These donations will help to supplement the groceries available at the 8 different Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP) locations every week.

Proper nutrition is so important to the health and well-being of people living with HIV/AIDS. AIDS Project Los Angeles sees over 11,000 low-income clients every single year, with an average income of less than $800/mo. The Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP) operates 8 food pantries across Los Angeles County (Santa Monica, Lancaster, North Hollywood, Mid-Wilshire, South LA, Long Beach, Claremont and Pasadena) where clients are able to bring home the equivalent of four bags of groceries every single week at no charge.

What Do We Need?

From November 3-December 25, 2014, individuals are invited to purchase and donate any of the following non-perishable or personal items, and/or conduct a food drive to collect these items:

  • Whole grain cereal
  • Canned meats
