About Moveable Feast, Inc.:
Originally a Baltimore-city-community-based organization, Moveable Feast quickly spread in the early 1990’s to other surrounding jurisdictions to provide services to people with HIV/AIDS, starting in Baltimore County, and soon thereafter expanding services to Howard, Harford, Anne Arundel, and Carroll counties. In 1998, Governor Parris Glendening awarded Moveable Feast a State grant to provide meals to people with HIV/AIDS on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Today, Moveable Feast serves 14 of the 24 counties in Maryland.
Moveable Feast is the only provider of medically tailored meals – free of charge- for people with serious illnesses. Our Board is adamant that this service be made available to individuals who are most in need, especially in those jurisdictions where there are limited or no other home delivered meal services available. No one should have to make the choice between paying an electric bill, or buying medication, over eating healthy during their illness. Moveable Feast is here to make sure no one as to make that choice!
