NOLP Food Pantries & Nutrition
Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP)
Begun as a $35-a-week food voucher program in 1986, APLA Health’s Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP) has since become the nation’s largest network of food pantries for people with HIV/AIDS, currently operating out of 13 locations throughout Los Angeles County.
Clients at our NOLP food pantries receive pre-bagged groceries that include fresh dairy, frozen meats, fresh produce, and an assortment of canned and dry goods that cover 100% of weekly meals as well as hygiene items and cleaning supplies.
NOLP clients also receive bilingual, one-on-one nutritional counseling and nutrition classes. Fact sheets about a range of nutrition topics and recipes for use with NOLP products are available in all NOLP locations.
For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
