donations over the past two weeks, totaling
about $65,000, to support North Texans with HIV
and AIDS living in poverty.

AIN's meals program, which serves more than
26,000 meals to 500 people. Almost half of these
clients are homeless or marginally housed.
The lames and Gayle Halperin foundation
and The Carl B. & Florence E. King Foundation
each made $10,000 gifts. DIFFA made a $9,500
grant to the meals program.

ization in Dallas."

dreds of thousands of dollars for the clients of

Food programs in danger of cuts
Congress is debating cutting programs like
the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for
Women, Infants and Children (better known as
WIC) and the Supplemental Nutrition Assis-
tance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the
food stamp program) and funding for food
banks. The North Texas Food Bank asks people
who are concerned about these cuts to contact
members of Congress to ask them not to slash
these programs. ■
