Who We Serve

Food & Friends provides meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to people living with life-challenging illnesses. Determination of eligibility is entirely health-based; Food & Friends has no requirements for income or insurance coverage. All meals are free-of-charge to the client. Food & Friends clients must be referred by a healthcare provider.

To be eligible for our services, one must have a qualifying illness or be receiving hospice care, have a compromised nutritional status, and a limited ability to prepare his/her own meals. Qualifying illness include: HIV/AIDS, cancer, poorly-controlled diabetes, stage 5 renal disease, congestive heart failure (NYHA class III or IV), chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder “COPD” (stage III or IV), multiple sclerosis (RRPS, SPMS, PPMS), ALS (middle or late stages), and Parkinson’s (Stage III, IV or V).
