PROGRAM SPOTLIGHT
Project OpenHand-Columbus
Pictured, above: Box full to the brim of groceries destined for the home of a Project OpenHand-Columbus client living with HIV/AIDS.
September 18 is National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day, when we bring attention to the growing number of people living long and fulfilling lives with HIV.
 
For nearly 30 years, Project OpenHand-Columbus has helped meet the nutritional needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. Studies have found that those living with HIV who regularly eat healthy food in the right amounts can better tolerate HIV drugs, maintain a healthy weight, and feel better overall. Proper nutrition improves both the health and the well-being of our clients. 
 
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we were able to expand our services by having foods delivered directly to the homes of our clients. This service was created to help those with compromised immune systems limit their risk of exposure to infection. It also allows clients to choose foods they know and love--and even accommodates cultural dietary preferences. What's more, it ensures that no Project OpenHand-Columbus client goes hungry because of rising food prices.
