Restaurants, cafes and food trucks across the city join (RED) with some of the biggest names in food to fight AIDS this June. From June 1-10 these participating venues will donate proceeds from various drinks and dishes to (RED) which was was founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver to engage businesses and people in the fight against AIDS.
To date, (RED) has generated more than $250 million for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, to support HIV/AIDS grants in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia. 100 percent of that money goes to work on the ground – no overhead is taken. Global Fund grants that (RED) supports have impacted more than 40 million people with prevention, treatment, counseling, HIV testing and care services.
