Moveable Feast Lexington prepares and delivers to the door a hot, nutritious meal five days a week to low-income people in Lexington-Fayette County who have HIV/AIDS and those under the care of Bluegrass Care Navigators (formerly Hospice of the Bluegrass). We also feed their caregivers and dependent children.
Interested in helping?
Our low-income clients depend on nutritious meals to keep their immune systems strong, help manage HIV symptoms as well as side effects, process medications and improve overall quality of life.
Moveable Feast provides 150+ meals a day and has a current need for volunteers to help us deliver. Here’s what a normal day of volunteering looks like:
For your first time, we have trained volunteers to help you package meals and drive. If you are interested in volunteering click below to sign up and don’t forget to bring your friends!
It has been over a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began, creating a lot of change and challenge for the entire world.
Moveable Feast, has been and will continue to follow CDC guidelines. Specifically, our board meetings are currently being held on zoom, our volunteers and staff members continue to wear masks, and we maintain social distancing.
However, the biggest challenge Moveable Feast has faced is our growing need. Our client list has grown tremendously with new and returning clients because of haphazard unemployment relief and stimulus payments. With that, we have been unable to host a live fundraiser for over a year and are in dire need of financial support. We are unable to resume live fundraisers until authorized by the CDC and our state government.
Given all those issues and situations, Movable Feast Lexington has readily adapted and pushed on without a glitch thank you to our amazing staff and growing volunteer base!
60% of Moveable Feast’s budget comes from donors. With good nutrition and proper medication, our at-risk AIDS clients can achieve a viral load so low as to live as close to normal life and be unable to transmit the virus to someone else. So, by donating to Moveable Feast you are not only feeding those in need of food but aiding in stopping the spread of AIDS.
