The AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin's Eau Claire office has opened a food pantry with some unique aspects. Case managers can deliver food to their clients, and donations are foods with high protein and fat that can help them fight off the illness.

"Clients who are facing wasting syndrome who need specialized food and nutritional supplements," says Cheryl Thiede. "We're able to provide those."

"Nutrition is so important for people who are living with HIV infection," says Christine Radtke, a public health nurse for the Eau Claire City-County Health Department. "That they're able to have this pantry and offer it to their clients is extraordinary."

Although the pantry is partially funded by the statewide organization, local donations of food or money are always welcome.
