Cancer-Fighting Compounds and Immune-Boosting Foods
Thursday, June 4, 2020 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Cooking To Combat COVID-19, a new online campaign from the Physicians Committee’s Food for Life program, is designed to help participants use a plant-based diet to fight hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity—which are among the conditions that can make COVID-19 more severe and deadly.


Immune Boosting Foods is class one in a four-class series. With timely nutrition and cooking information, this class will explore foods that are rich in protective compounds and immune-boosting nutrients such as beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamin C, and zinc. Learn how to create a colorful, scrumptious, immune-boosting meal.


This class includes:

  • Research-based nutrition and health information
  • A whole-food, plant-based cooking demo
  • Digital educational resources and recipes
  • A supportive community
