Food Bank Needs Donations

Our Food Bank is Bare!! Donations Needed!!

RHAC operates a monthly food bank for HIV+ people who are living on limited incomes and/or struggling with health issues. We receive a generous amount of non-perishables from the London Food Bank four times a year, as well as ongoing regular donations from St. George’s Presbyterian Church and Metropolitan Community Church. We are grateful for these donations.

But due to an increase in the number of people accessing our food bank, known as the Country Cupboard, this season we are running low on supplies!!
