A Loving Spoonful

This Vancouver organization is successful because they campaign well for one simple message - assist those with HIV/AIDs with meeting the basic need for food. Providing these individuals with food means one less in the hospital for symptoms which are aggrevated by malnutrition. As well, the program provides assistance to those with the disease who are too sick to retrieve help on their own and gives them a chance to "focus on life's other challenges".

The goal for 2005 is to provide 100,000 meals free of charge. If you get the opportunity to be in Vancouver, attend one of their fundraisers or read their newsletters. This one simple model is well known throughout the city and gives at least 275 men, women and children assistance who would not otherwise have a chance.
