Savoring Hope: Winnipeg Eateries Unite for HIV Fundraiser

A Taste for Life returns to Winnipeg on Wednesday, April 17th, a unique initiative that brings together hospitality partners and the community to support a vibrant and healthy Manitoba. Diners can head out on Wednesday, April 17th to grab a delicious meal, drink or snack from participating locations. Proceeds from their purchase will be donated to the life-saving care provided by Nine Circles Community Health Centre to those impacted by HIV-STBBI’s.

What is A Taste for Life (ATFL)? ATFL started in Ottawa in 1999 as a joint effort of Bruce House and the Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation. The tradition now continues with Bruce House operating A Taste for Life, which has been joined by communities from across the country, with Winnipeg joining in 2022. Nine Circles’ HIV Lived Experience Advisory has deemed Winnipeg’s 2024 theme:

“Not Letting Our Stories Disappear” an intergenerational approach to HIV/AIDS history, storytelling, activism, and building community.

How does it work? Participating Taste locations open their doors on the third Wednesday in April and donate a percentage of meals or specialty item sales to Nine Circles Community Health Centre. Funds collected will directly support people effected by HIV-STBBIs with: testing and treatment, care and support, Indigenous cultural programming, and community.
