Food For Life (FFL)

Food for Life (FFL)

Nutrition plays an important role during cancer treatment. Good nutrition can help patients fight infection and better manage therapy related side-effects. CAN offers nutrition education and cooking classes specifically designed for cancer patients and caregivers.

 Each Food for Life class includes:

  • Specific information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote or discourage disease.
  • Cooking demonstrations of delicious and healthy recipes.
  • Practical cooking skills and tips for incorporating healthy eating habits into daily life.
  • A supportive and motivational atmosphere to empower participants to take charge of their health with the foods that are put on their plates.

Classes are free to the community and PCRM instructor certified. 

All Food for Life classes are currently being held virtually. 

The Food for Life program was created by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
