Without food, we cannot live. The Just Living Foundation exists to ensure we provide all those we can with healthy, nutritious food to allow communities to thrive.

 

Food Chain, UK

We have enabled The Food Chain to support approximately 600 households to achieve sustainable change in the current financial year.

  • In the 2013-14 financial year there was a decrease in income from the previous year of approximately 5% and an increase in the expenses of just over 5%
  • The main reason for the higher level of expenditure was the cost of food delivery service which increased by £49,733 compared with the previous year
  • Last financial year, 518 people living with HIV were provided for; plus their 212 children and 128 carers

The Food Chain exists to ensure people living with HIV in London can access the nutrition they need to get well, stay well and lead healthy independent lives. Mainly volunteer led, it aims to provide: dietic advice, nutritional groceries, communal lunches, home meals, and cookery and nutrition classes.
