On Thursday, March 29 you can make a difference by dining out and supporting those living with HIV/AIDS.
Dining Out For Life is BC’s largest restaurant fundraiser, benefiting A Loving Spoonful and Friends For Life. This year Dining Out For Life will feature over 250 restaurants from Whistler to White Rock and across the Fraser Valley who will contribute 25% of their sales that day to people living with HIV/AIDS; a couple spending just $140 at a Dining Out For Life restaurant on March 29 will provide meals for ten people.
In addition to supporting the two charities diners will also receive a pull-tab prize card with a chance to instantly win a selection of prizes including gift certificates, getaways and more. Diners who complete the ballot included with their donation envelope will also be entered into a grand prize draw.
Since 1991 Vancouver diners have helped raise more than $3 million for HIV/AIDS support services.
A Loving Spoonful provides free, nutritious meals to men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in Greater Vancouver and the surrounding areas. In the last year alone, A Loving Spoonful has provided over 100,000 meals to those who need it most with meals are delivered weekly by a team of dedicated volunteers.
Friends For Life supports people living with life-threatening illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, their families and their caregivers.

Programs include massage/body work, yoga, Naturopathic and Traditional Chinese Medicine, a nutrition/meals program and care for individuals confined to their homes.
