Educating the Community on the Importance of Healthy Eating
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
At the heart of our mission, we truly believe that food is medicine and what we eat is core to our health and healing.
We involve hundreds of clients, their caregivers, and teen and adult volunteers in our Meals 4 Health and Healing education each year.
We also enjoy collaborative relationships with various cancer clinics, oncology professionals, schools, and dietetic programs through referrals, nutrition presentations, integrated nutrition classes, cooking demos, and health fairs to deepen our "food is medicine" reach.
