May 9, 2018 Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival presented the Poverello Center with a check for $375,212. That’s double what was raised by Poverello toward this year’s effort. The generosity of AHF through Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival makes this event our largest single fundraiser of the year. We’re interested in attempting to fill gaps left by cuts in our local Ryan White Part A eligibility reductions for food pantry which were halved for the 2018-2019 contract year. “People with HIV need ready access to healthy foods in order to remain healthy and accomplish care goals including taking¬†antiretroviral medication as prescribed,” says Thomas Pietrogallo, MSW/LCSW, MBA and CEO at Poverello. “People with HIV deserve the best we have, and this money helps us fill the gap between what we’re paid for a bag of food and what it costs. We’re so grateful to AHF and the Florida AIDS Walk & Music festival for joining with us to fight food insecurity among those of us with HIV.”
