The AIDS Food Store is Southern California’s longest serving HIV/AIDS food provider. Started in 1985 through Christ Chapel Long Beach, when a group came together to address the issue of hunger in a community where many social service agencies were unable or unwilling to help.
Consequently, the AIDS Food Store Long Beach was born with the commitment that no one in the Long Beach area living with HIV/AIDS disabilities would ever be without food, love and support.
Those in need are given a standard bag of staples, selected for balanced nutrition including: Fresh fruits, vegetables, pastries, breads, meat and dairy products.
AIDS Food Store relies on agencies, foundations, groups, churches, businesses and individuals to assist with ongoing donations of food, supplies and financial support. They receive no government funding and have no paid administration.
