MINORITY AIDS INITIATIVE GRANT
The Minority AIDS initiative grant is helping Caring Choices expand current programs in Butte County. These programs aim to Increase HIV general knowledge and remove barriers to HIV testing in the Asian/Hmong populations. Statistics show that 66.5% of Asian Americans and 43.1% of Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islanders have never been tested for HIV. By offering culturally sensitive information and free testing in non clinical settings we are attempting to increase.
GRUB Produce Closet
Between late spring and early winter Caring Choices receives donations of seasonal fruits and vegetables from local farms. These donations help us offer healthy food alternatives to our clients and those in need. With the help of staff and volunteers we are able to sort, bag, and delivery these delicious fruits and veggies.
Nutrition Café is a program that incorporates the use of charitable donations and affordably allocated resources to help educate and train HIV positive clients and their caretakers in basic health concepts. The goal is not only to increase the awareness of the importance diet plays in health but also to increase socialization between clients, caregivers and community members, in efforts to help nurture strong and supportive relationships. By establishing peer led classes we hope to facilitate access of information and create a comfortable environment to practice and implement newly acquired skills.
