About Franchesque Richards
On Saturday, August 12th, we will be bowling to Fight Hunger with Poverello. Poverello serves about 3,000 individuals who are sick and experiencing food insecurity each year with healthy groceries. Will you join us in the fight against food insecurity for people experiencing serious illness?
Poverello’s mission for 30 years has been to provide nutritious food, services and basic living essentials for people with HIV, but did you know they’ve begun helping people with Chronic Kidney Disease, Cancer, Heart Disease and Diabetes? Since the Ryan White Part A program covers food for people with HIV, this year, every dollar raised buys food for someone experiencing one of these other critical or chronic illnesses.
In addition, the Poverello Center offers:
· Cooking Classes
· Full Service Gym
· Onsite Nutritionist
· Smoking Cessation Class
· Haircuts for women and men
· Mental Health Classes
