Food for Life
Our exciting partnership with George House Trust gets started on 30 April.
Supported by Manchester City Council, The Food Chain will be working with George House Trust to support people in Manchester who are living with HIV.
The Food for Life project is based on our Eating Positively nutrition and cookery classes. As well as increasing culinary skills, participants will learn about the importance of nutrition, particularly when living with HIV, shopping and eating well on a budget, how certain foods can help manage symptoms and side effects of medication, heart health and reducing the risk of diabetes.
Siobhán Lanigan, our Chief Executive, had this to say about the partnership:
"The Food Chain is delighted to be working in partnership with George House Trust in support of people living with HIV in Manchester. Both our charities have a strong track record of providing excellent services over many years. We all need a nutritionally well balanced diet to live a healthy life, and this is especially important for people living with HIV to ensure their medication is effective and their immune system is as strong as it can be. The Food for Life project will make a long lasting difference for people at a time of real need."
