Putting our money where our mouth is
Not having reliable access to a sufficient amount of affordable, nutritious food.
Not having enough healthy food directly impacts cancer patient’s survival and quality of life.
Patients experiencing food insecurity are generally short on cash, forcing them to choose between:
We offer this program to eliminate these choices and make sure that people with cancer have the best food to support their health.
On a normal day, those with cancer are immunocompromised, meaning they need to avoid public gatherings and places they might be exposed to germs, infections, or diseases. With COVID-19 in the mix, this is even more important than ever.
Many people with cancer rely on grocery or restaurant delivery, but that requires either cooking when you’re exhausted or eating (usually) unhealthy restaurant food. The meals we deliver to homebound cancer patients are created by certified nutritionists to make sure that they are healthy and medically appropriate – working with the body, instead of against it.
Like many other things, minority and marginalized groups experience higher rates of food insecurity.
Since 2020, our Food Security program has kept homebound cancer patients fed, healthy, and safe.
We provide programs for patients and caregivers across the country. See how we can help you.Learn More
