2017 marks the 30th year the Poverello “Eat Well” Center has provided life-saving food and basic life essentials to Broward County youth, women and men living with HIV/AIDS, most of whom are at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level.  Each year, the food pantry serves about 3,000 eligible Broward County residents living with HIV/AIDS. We’re really good at what we do. Did you know that during the 2016-2017 Contract year for Ryan White Part A (March 1, 2016 – February 28, 2017), 86.1% of our program participants were virally suppressed? That means that on average, our participants do better than those people who don’t participate in Food Pantry services, even within the same Ryan White Part A programs. It also means we’re far better than the national average for people with HIV whose viral suppression rates are just above 30%. Fiscal Year 2016.2017 Ryan White Part A Outcomes & Demographics

2017 also marks the first year that Poverello began serving people in our community who have other critical/chronic illnesses on a limited basis. As more funding is identified, these other populations will increasingly be a part of what we provide.

We’re proud to be one of the only specialty food pantry’s in the nation to offer medically tailored groceries for a healthy menu to people with critical/chronic illnesses. Food and groceries provided by Poverello’s food pantry amount to nearly half a million meals over the course of the year.
