Food Voucher Program

The purpose of the MASS Food Voucher Program is to guide the administration of the Ryan White Part A (RWPA) Food Voucher Program/ Food Bank/ Home Delivered Meals (a support service under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009). The administration of Food Vouchers must be consistent with Ryan White Part A client eligibility criteria and the service category definition established by MASS.

MASS continues to work hard achieving our mission to assist in sustaining and improving health, protecting the dignity and encouraging independent living of people living with HIV/AIDS. Through this project MASS manages the provision of the Food Voucher Program throughout the Peninsula area to people who have HIV/AIDS and are eligible for Ryan White Part A services. Please note that services are limited due to current funding levels.

This service provides certificates/gift cards in increments of $25 based upon household composition. Certificates/gift cards may be redeemed for food at cooperating supermarkets such as:

  • ALDI
  • Farm Fresh
  • Walmart
  • Food Lion
  • Jim’s Market (Newport News)

Vouchers are provided from retailers who offer produce, meat, and dairy items, as well as personal hygiene items. Certificates/gift cards cannot be used to purchase alcohol, tobacco, illegal drugs or firearms. Certificates/gift cards may not be redeemed for cash.
