Keith Haring Foundation Teams With GMHC for NYC Food Pantry Program

New York City–based AIDS service organization Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC) has launched a five-year partnership with the Keith Haring Foundation—named after the late artist and HIV activist Keith Haring—to feed low-income individuals and families living with HIV. The partnership was launched February 16, the 20th anniversary of Haring’s death from AIDS-related complications.

The partnership includes a $250,000 grant from the foundation. Additionally, GMHC’s pantry program in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan will now be called the Keith Haring Food Pantry Program. The food provided through the program will continue to address nutritional needs specific to HIV-positive people, such as diets that combat unhealthy levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and blood sugar.

“We feel that naming our pantry program after Keith Haring is the best way that GMHC can honor his legacy as one of the most respected and beloved New York City artists and HIV/AIDS activists of the late 20th century,” Marjorie J. Hill, PhD, chief executive officer of GMHC, said in a statement. “And for our clients, this partnership will mean a further solution to hunger, a healthier life and overall improved well-being.”
