For people who are HIV-positive in low-income communities, malnutrition not only makes it difficult to live happy and healthy lives, but it can also weaken the effectiveness of their medications, making them more susceptible to illness and AIDS. Mama's Kitchen provides people affected by HIV/AIDS or cancer with access to nutritious food. In 2004, the organization opened Mama's Pantry, a place where HIV-positive individuals in San Diego can shop for fresh produce and other groceries free of charge.
Mama's Pantry shoppers come from households with an average annual income of $7,800, and often struggle to cover costs of groceries after paying for housing, health care, and other urgent needs. Although the typical shopper at Mama's Pantry is strong enough to shop and cook food independently, many rely on public transportation and struggle to carry full bags of groceries home due to the effects of their illness. A collapsible mini shopping cart can help Mama's Pantry customers to shop more comfortably and commute back home independently.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Mama's Kitchen provide HIV-positive shoppers at Mama's Pantry with carts to make shopping easier and more comfortable. If G-Team members raise $380, then Mama's Kitchen can provide mini shopping carts to 15 shoppers. Each additional $25 raised will purchase another shopping cart.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
