QUICK OVERVIEW

IMPACT

APLA Health's Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP) started as a food voucher program in 1986 and has since become the nation's largest network of food pantries for people with HIV/AIDS. It is currently operating out of eight locations throughout Los Angeles County. Clients of NOLP receive pre-bagged groceries that include fresh dairy, frozen meats, fresh produce, and an assortment of canned and dry goods, as well as hygiene items and cleaning supplies. NOLP clients also receive bilingual, one-on-one nutritional counseling and nutrition classes. NOLP provides groceries to over 1,700 clients who live on a limited income.

In response, we are requiring that all volunteers receive their first dose of a one-dose regimen or their second dose of a two-dose regimen upon request.
