Food Samaritans helps individuals living with chronic illnesses

A Palm Springs organization helps those with chronic illnesses safely receive proper nutrition during the pandemic

Since 1991, AAP – Food Samaritans has been providing nutritional support to improve the lives of low-income individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Five years ago, the organization extended this support to individuals living with other chronic illnesses as well.

Founded by the late Gloria Greene and Jeannette Rockefeller, the organization has its roots in offering meals at the backdoor of Greene’s restaurant, Gloria’s (and later, Two Glorias). From there, the founders discussed how they could have a consistent impact on those in need, crafting a monthly food voucher program that continues today.
