I've seen patients who received assistance from Food for Life Network, inc., who didn't qualify for other services provided by the state or other programs and can say that their services are truly a lifeline. The basic food provided frees up family resources for other important necessities. The staff work together yearly to provide needy children served with school supplies. It's an amazing organization that provides essential food to some of our neediest community members. Great Job!

My family partnered with Food for Life Network, Inc. and established the Food for Life Network (FFLN) AIDS Marathon/ Half-Marathon Fundraiser in 2008. The marathon benefits Food for Life Network, Inc., a local 501[c](3) non-profit organization that has provided and delivered more than 1.5 million meals to starving and malnourished men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in South Florida. The FFLN AIDS Marathon is hosted annually by ING Miami Marathon. This year the marathon is on January 30, 2011 in Miami, Florida. Our goal is to raise $50,000. All contributions go directly to FFLN, Inc., which allocates more than 90% to client services. All contributions are tax deductible.
