The Jerry Larson FOODBasket received a makeover as a part of the dedication ceremony attended by Supervisor Ken Yeager and numerous community members.
On November 7, 2014, The Health Trust renamed the FOODBasket and dedicated it as the Jerry Larson FOODBasket to honor Jerry’s unrelenting advocacy for people living with HIV/AIDS and his unparalleled years of volunteer service.
Jerry Larson, passed away on September 30, 2014. He spent the last two decades as an active leader in Santa Clara County in the battle against HIV/AIDS. During that time he spent over a decade on Santa Clara County’s HIV Planning Council for Prevention and Care, and since its inception, was a committed volunteer at the FOODBasket. But more than that, Jerry was a dear friend, thoughtful soul and giving person. His memory will forever be a part of us.
