In the early days of the AIDS epidemic, when nobody knew what HIV was or how it was spread, few people in Baltimore were willing to go out of their way to help those dying of the disease. Tom Patrick was one of the willing -- still is, in fact -- and will be honored for that commitment this weekend, as grand marshal of the Baltimore Pride parade. "It's going to be a hoot," said Patrick, 65, who for the last 24 years has worked to deliver free meals and other services to the sick and dying of Baltimore with the nonprofit Moveable Feast . The group is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and Patrick -- its longtime volunteer manager -- is about to retire, said Ted Blankenship, the group's development director.

They were doing the time warp at the Hippo nightclub a couple of weeks ago, at the Moveable Feast's annual shindig. The place was transformed into a 1930s-style club, dubbed "Havana Moon." Swanky decorations and Doc Scantlin and his Imperial Palms Orchestra, complete with chanteuse and showgirls, made you feel as if you'd stepped onto the set of a Fred and Ginger movie. And then there was the crowd of more than 340 swells, which included the likes of Dan Proctor, Steve Schwartzman, Vic Basile, Rhea Feikin, Phil Cooper, Carole and Bean Sibel, Chuck Bowers, Nan Rosenthal, Michael Driscoll, Lawrence Doane, Curt Decker, Mary Dempsey, Jim Spellissy, John Yuhanick and Jack Kardos.

It was rainin' polyester and Afro wigs at the Hippo nightclub for the Moveable Feast's "Fall Gala." This year, the theme was Studio 54. So, many of the 350 guests arrived togged out in '70s threads to groove to tunes being spun by guest disc jockey Nicki Siano, Studio 54 original DJ. "There were lots of very big, very pointy collars," notes Moveable Feast's executive director Vic Basile. One good example was Hippo owner Chuck Bowers, who apparently donned a red polyester jacket with "big, long collars that reached across his shoulders," according to Vic. However, the big hit of the night was '70s disco diva Martha Wash, who belted out her Weather Girls hit, It's Rainin' Men, and a few others for the happenin' horde.

What began as a small operation in one man's kitchen has become a holiday tradition in Highlandtown, where more than 100 volunteers will spend part of Christmas Day delivering food and gifts to people who are housebound with HIV and AIDS. The volunteers, whose numbers have doubled over the past four years, will work for the nonprofit Moveable Feast, the Maryland Community Kitchen program for housebound AIDS patients and their families. The group will visit 148 clients' homes, serving warm meals and delivering presents to children younger than 16. "Everybody we feed is homebound with HIV/AIDS, and we think there ought to be a special day for them," said Vic Basile, executive director of Moveable Feast.

When Dave Ackerman signed up for a 140-mile charity bike ride to support Marylanders with AIDS, he knew it would take a lot of time and energy to train. But after getting on a bike for the first time since childhood, Ackerman, who weighed 315 pounds, realized that completing Moveable Feast's Rehoboth- to-Baltimore ride this coming weekend was going to be more challenging than he had imagined. High cholesterol and blood pressure, and Type 2 diabetes made even light exercise uncomfortable and potentially dangerous for Ackerman.

It's a 7-year-old cooking and delivery service facing pressures from more and more thankful clients.

It would be hard to concoct a better way to draw a crowd for a good cause on a cool, gray Sunday afternoon than grilled cheese sandwiches. The Mount Washington Tavern had to turn away more than 100 people after its Grilled Cheese Cook-Off sold out Sunday. The $10-a-ticket event raised $1,000 for Moveable Feast, a charity that delivers free, nutritious meals for people living with HIV/AIDS and breast cancer . Think crispy, buttery sourdough bread, smoked applewood bacon.

Sara Lauver and Sigrid Lauren slipped out of the office at lunchtime and headed around the corner to meet up with their new best friend. Their buddy had sent a tweet, letting them know she'd be idling at the corner of Central and Fleet. Well hello again, Curbside Cafe, you and your mobile burritos. Missed you. "I've been thinking about it all week," Lauver said, after leaning into the truck window and ordering what's becoming her usual — a grilled veggie with balsamic marinated tofu wrapped with all the fixings — including avocado, corn relish, cheese and tomato.

A nonprofit social services agency that provides food to HIV/AIDS patients and other terminally ill people in the Baltimore area may be forced to turn away 175 of its clients beginning tomorrow because of funding recommendations that have decreased the group's federal support by half. Moveable Feast is set to lose about $165,000 of its annual funding through the Ryan White Care Act because of directives made by Associated Black Charities, the agency contracted by the city to make funding recommendations for charities receiving federal AIDS money, according to Victor Basile, Moveable Feast's executive director.
