If someone you know is living with a critical illness he or she may be eligible for our program. Eligibility for home delivered meals from Project Angel Food is based on the inability to obtain food and/or prepare meals due to any one of the qualifying illnesses which include but are not limited to: HIV/AIDS, cancer, stroke, heart disease or kidney disease.
Once eligibility forms are received by Client Services and a new client is approved for service, a call will be made to conduct an intake interview. We are able to conduct intakes in English and in Spanish. A nutrition assessment, conducted by a Registered Dietitian, is part of the intake process. Special diets are available according to each person's medical requirements.
We comply with California State Confidentiality Laws regarding all medical diagnoses and personal information. As such, if a service provider or emergency contact would like to refer a client, he or she should fax a confidentiality release form to 323.845.1834.
Project Angel Food’s staff does our best to accommodate clients with a variety of dietary needs, but the meals are not produced in an allergen-free environment. Food prepared in our kitchen may come in contact with wheat, gluten, milk, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish. Please include a signed statement specifying the severity of a prospective client's allergy (i.e. signs and symptoms), and indicating allergic reaction is non-life threatening to receive our meals.
