Food for Life: Cancer Class

Tuesday, Feb. 11 - Tuesday, March 3, 2020  |  PCRM Office, 5100 Wisconsin Ave., NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20016

Research has shown that more than one-third of all cancer deaths in the United States are due to poor diet, yet most are unaware of the connection.

Faced with these startling statistics, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine developed the Food for Life: Cancer Project to offer a new direction in battling this disease. Each two-hour class features a video, a discussion, and the opportunity to taste plant-based dishes, following a cooking demonstration.

The Food for Life: Cancer Project classes include information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote or discourage cancer growth, along with demonstrations of simple recipes that can be easily re-created at home. The intended audience of the Food for Life: Cancer Project classes are cancer survivors and their family and friends, as well as those looking to prevent the disease. These classes are not intended for individuals currently going through cancer treatment.

This is a FREE four-class series on Tuesday nights at 6 p.m. starting Feb.11 and going through March 3. Participants must register to attend.
