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.
Nutrition Education & Food Services
EAC Network’s Nutrition Education & Food Services teammates, Estefani DeVargas and Rosella Fuscaldo, glammed it up with MAC Volunteers on World AIDS Day. For the 9th year, our friends at MAC cosmetics turned our food pantry from drab to glam – we can’t thank them enough for sharing their love on this special day!
Once again, MAC Cosmetics volunteers made a difference for EAC Network’s Nutrition Education & Food Services pantry. Over the past 15 years, this small army of enthusiastic MAC volunteers has worked their magic by donating thousands of hours for our food pantry and making a difference for People Living with HIV/ADS.
