YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN YOUR FIGHT

WE'VE NEVER TURNED AWAY AN ELIGIBLE CLIENT

Become a client

The requirements for becoming a Food Outreach client are simple, and the process of qualification is straightforward. Clients who live at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) can qualify for all of our services. For more information download the 2015 Federal Poverty Guidelines.

Anyone who earns more than 300% FPL can still receive nutritional counseling, attend Hot Lunch Mondays, and participate in our education breakfasts and cooking classes.

Food Outreach has never denied anyone qualified services due to an inability to pay.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR FOOD OUTREACH SERVICES:

Clients must have a confirmed diagnosis of HIV/AIDS or in the treatment of cancer from a healthcare professional: Physician, Nurse, Physician’s Assistant, Social Worker or Dietitian.

Referrals are required for all clients.

Once the completed referral form has been received, the registered Dietitian will contact the client to set up the initial intake appointment. Potential clients are also welcome to contact Food Outreach directly to see if the referral has been received.

Forms must be signed and faxed (to 314.652.3673) from a referral site.

All clients have an initial intake appointment with our on-staff Registered Dietitian before becoming enrolled in the program. This appointment covers the following:

Introduction to Food Outreach’s programs and guidelines.

Nutrition assessment.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) test, which is non-invasive.

Review of Food Outreach grocery menu.

Clients must live at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (click here to download FPL document) to receive our services for free. Any person with HIV/AIDS or cancer who does not fit those income guidelines can receive nutrition counseling at no charge.

HIV/AIDS clients are considered clients for life; cancer clients remain enrolled in our program up to one year after their initial intake, at which time they are reassessed for continued eligibility in our program. Cancer clients who have rolled off of our program may be re-enrolled if they experience a recurrence or have a new diagnosis.
