Answer: NO, not at all. HIV cannot be transmitted through sharing meals.

HIV is transmitted only through contact with five bodily fluids: 1) blood, 2) semen, 3) vaginal fluid, 4) rectal fluids and 5) breast milk. HIV is most commonly transmitted through sexual intercourse with a person living with HIV, through sharing needles during drug use, and from mother to child during pregnancy, birth or breastfeeding. All of these methods of transmission can be prevented. Using a condom during sex, using clean needles, and adhering to antiretroviral therapy if you are living with HIV all greatly reduce the chance of transmission.

Having HIV doesn't mean you are going to die, only if you take medication the way health experts tell you to.
