Suzanne Goldstein heads Food & Friends, which delivers three meals a day to 1,100 men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses in Washington, D.C., and 12 surrounding counties. To meet a growing need, Goldstein initiated a $7 million capital campaign in 2000, which after receiving a $990,000 Community Development Grant from the District of Columbia and a $100,000 pledge from Goldstein herself, is well on its way to reaching its goal of tripling Food & Friends’ capacity. In addition to her leadership and fundraising duties, Goldstein serves every summer as a crew member for a four-day AIDS ride, where she sleeps in a tent, fills water bottles, hauls ice, and picks up trash for bicycle riders.
