Kitchen Angels Lavender Fair Apron

Description (Brief)
Meals On Wheels began in the United States in 1954 with a Philadelphia program that provided nutritional food to shut-ins. Staffed by volunteers, meal programs spread around the country. In the 1990s, the HIV and AIDS epidemic generated meal deliveries targeted at younger people. This apron is from Kitchen Angels of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It started in 1992, in support of people ill with AIDS.
