Food for Life: Cancer Project Nutrition and Cooking Class

Research has shown that certain dietary patterns have a major effect in helping cancer survivors to

live longer, healthier lives. Numerous studies have shown that a diet built from plant foods offers

the most cancer-fighting protection of any diet plan. Reviews by the American Institute for Cancer

Research showed that as much as 40 percent of cancer risk may be related to diet.

PCRM’s Food for Life: Cancer Project classes offer a unique opportunity to:


Acquire knowledge about the link between diet and cancer

Experience the benefits of plant-based nutrition

Learn the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health.


In the Food for Life: Cancer Project classes, attendees do all of this while enjoying  cooking

demonstrations and tasting delicious, healthful dishes.


This workshop consists of 4 informative, fun, delicious classes during the 2 days and includes a copy of the book, The Cancer Survivor's Guide by Neal Barnard, MD and Jennifer K. Reilly, RD which provides the science, easy-to-prepare recipes and references and resources.
