Food for Life: The Power of Food for Health

The Food for Life program is a community-based nutrition education program of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).

With more than million people being diagnosed with cancer and 26 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the United States each year—and many more cases in other countries across the globe—there is an urgent need for a new direction in battling diseases. The Food for Life program is an innovative approach to a medical challenge. It aims first to prevent disease. When a disease has been diagnosed, it works for improving survival.

Designed by physicians, nutrition experts, and registered dietitians, each of our curricula includes information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote health and fight disease. The classes work to translate complex scientific nutrition information into simple and easy meals. Each Food for Life nutrition and cooking class features a nutrition lecture and live cooking demonstration all within a supportive group setting.

Launched in 2001, the program was meant to help cancer survivors take advantage of the healing power of foods. Since then, the program has grown to include classes focused on diabetes, children’s health, and healthy weight management.

Currently, PCRM offers four types of curricula:

Food for Life: Cancer Project
Acquire knowledge about the link between diet and cancer.

Food for Life: Diabetes Initiative
Learn more about the benefits of a plant-based nutrition approach for diabetes and prevention.

Food for Life: Kids Health
Establish in children knowledge and skills necessary to form healthful habits they can carry well into adulthood.

Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health
Discover how simple qualitative dietary choices can lead to a healthy weight.
