Other Options, Inc.
November 1, 2010

The Friends Food Pantry at Other Options is the only free food source in the 405 and 580 area codes for the HIV population in Oklahoma. The number of people living with HIV/AIDS in Oklahoma is growing significantly which continually places a burden on Other Options to enhance its’ funding sources. Other Options recognizes that this target population of children, youth, men, and women with HIV disease typically require a higher intake of proteins and complex carbohydrates as well as special formulas for babies and adults in trauma. This target population is unable to obtain this higher content food because of income restrictions and other pressing needs. Without Other Options these clients would not get the proper nutrition that they need to continue on!
