NOLP Food Pantries & Nutrition
Vance North Necessities of Life Program (NOLP)
Begun as a $35-a-week food voucher program in 1986, APLA’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 eight 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, 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 via firstname.lastname@example.org.
