Angel Food East is a volunteer program which provides daily, hot meals to meet the nutritional needs of those people living with HIV and AIDS in Ulster County, and they are seeking volunteers.
Originally founded in 1992, when Angel Food East first began they served only six meals each weekday. Today they average 45 to 50 meals each weekday, and that number sometimes peaks to over 60 meals. Menus accommodate each individual’s dietary restrictions and the complex nutritional needs of persons living with a compromised immune system. Each morning a crew of talented cooks prepare meals in the kitchen of St. John’s Episcopal church on Albany Avenue in Kingston.
Angel Food East is looking for volunteers, especially drivers to help deliver the meals. This takes only a few hours around lunch on weekdays, and volunteers are reimbursed for their mileage If anyone can spare a day or days, your help
would be greatly appreciated.
To learn more – or to volunteer your time – please contact Joan Murray weekdays from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon at: (845) 331 – 6538.
