Casey House signature events raise funds for vital programs and services at Casey House. We are grateful to our generous sponsors, volunteers, artists, galleries, and attendees for bringing health and hope to people living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto.
Read about June’s HIV+ Eatery, Art With Heart and Voices for World AIDS Day below.
June’s HIV+ Eatery
June’s HIV+ Eatery is a 3-night dining experience where the meal is prepared by people living with HIV. It launched our #smashstigma campaign in 2017 and took place again in March, 2020.
Three nights of delicious food made collaboratively by our team of HIV+ chefs and the professionals from Fidel Gastro’s impressed over 240 guests and spread the word that we need to keep working to #smashstigma around HIV.
For many people living with HIV/AIDS, it’s the stigma that hurts the most. June’s HIV+ Eatery is an opportunity to fight stigma with every bite. To come together in a show of love, support and acceptance, and to dispel the myths about HIV that condemn so many to suffer in silence.
Save your appetite, lose your prejudice.
