Hello and welcome to e health forum.

You do not have any risk of HIV infection.

HIV is not transmitted by sharing food or drinks with a person, who is possibly infected with HIV.

PLEASE NOTE that HIV is transmitted by any activity where body fluids are exchanged, such as: ‎

‎•‎ Unprotected vaginal, anal and oral sex ‎
‎•‎ Unhygienic Intravenous drug use ‎
‎•‎ Poorly sterilized dental and medical equipment ‎
‎•‎ Unhygienic tattooing ‎
‎•‎ Unhygienic acupuncture ‎
‎•‎ Poorly screened blood transfusions ‎
‎•‎ HIV infected mother to child transmission ‎

I hope this helps.
