A Food and Nutrition Education Lifeline to the HIV/AIDS Community

When the pandemic hit New York in March 2020, low-income individuals living with HIV/AIDS became essentially homebound, placing them at higher risk for food insecurity. To fill this service gap, EAC Network’s Nutrition Education & Food Services program pivoted to provide remote services. Participants were then able to receive food vouchers via the mail and participate in nutrition education videoconference sessions, while in-person services were not possible. Through actions like these, we made a true difference in the lives of at-risk Nassau and Suffolk residents at an incredibly challenging time.

2 Weatherization Assistance Programs Bridging the Gap During Winter

Winter in New York can be long and hard, especially for low-income Nassau County families. Due to the high cost of energy, some get stuck between a rock and hard place when it gets cold. A lack of resources then forces tough choices, like staying warm or having enough to eat. To address this pervasive problem, EAC Network’s two weatherization assistance programs (HEAT and WRAP) deliver direct support services that help members of our community stay in their homes and out of costly institutional care.
