Begging for Vitamins

Food not Bombs Provides Free, Healthy, Vegetarian Food Every Sunday.

Food not Bombs Provides Free, Healthy, Vegetarian Food Every Sunday.

We have patients from a wide diversity of backgrounds and lifestyles. Some have insurance and homes, some don’t even have shoes. One of the things that ties our patients together is malnutrition. This lack of healthy food both causes and perpetuates the medical conditions we treat.
Occupy Medical is always looking for way to deal with this problem. We have hosted church groups that shared a tray of peanut butter sandwiches and fresh fruit. We have allied with Food not Bombs to share healthy food with the community. We give away vitamins in little baggies to patients that need that extra boost. We have given out granola bars to patients who have so little protein in their blood that even simple wounds can not heal.
We need multivitamins, prenatal vitamins, minerals, fish oil, and single vitamins.

These gifts may not seem like much to the average person. To our people, it is a gift of life. We are always in need. If you have a connection that provide a sizable source of help to us with this problem, please contact us. If you would like to volunteer to help us find donations, please contact us.
Even if you have a couple of bags of baby carrots or a bottle of zinc capsules, please drop them by the clinic during our Sunday hours – 12-4pm. We are always at the Eugene Park Blocks on 8th and Oak doing what we can to save lives.
