Now in its 24th year, Loving Food Resources provides basic needs to people living with HIV/AIDS through food, health and personal care items. In 1996, LFR expanded our program to extend services to persons in Home Hospice care. On average, 80+ people utilize the Loving Food Resources self-select food pantry each week. The total amount of food and personal care items provided to each client averages 45 pounds per week.
Our clientele consists of over 200 individuals with 29% of the population being represented by women and 33% of the population being represented by minorities (African American, Hispanic, and Native American).
Loving Food Resources is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that relies on fundraising events, small grants, donations from individuals and faith communities.
Special assistance is also provided by good friends at Mountain Food Products, Farside Farms, Harris Teeter, Trader Joe's, WCQS, and Manna Food Bank.
