Food PantryDamien Center's food pantry provides a variety of nutritional foods for our clients. The food in our pantry is meant to act as a supplement to our clients’ household nutrition needs. Our convenient, pre-packaged grocery bags may include breakfast options (cereal, oatmeal), beans, vegetables, canned meats, soups, fruit, starches (pasta, rice, potatoes), bread, frozen meats, and other items as available. Food pantry order contents are based on current availability.

We provide food assistance to both our own clients and those who receive services at other AIDS Service Organizations. To access the food pantry every two weeks, clients must have an approved referral.

Please contact your Care Coordinator for more information about referrals. Don't have a Care Coordinator? Get linked to care through our Linkage to Care team.
