Delicious, health-supportive meals for people on Cape Cod facing cancer.
What is Wellness Eats?
We believe in the healing power of food and nutrition in supporting our health and wellbeing. Wellness Eats is a recent expansion of the Cape Wellness Collaborative initiative to provide integrative wellness therapies to people on the Cape & Islands facing cancer. The mission of this expansion is to provide healthy, delicious, nutrient-dense meals to our clients during cancer treatment.
How does it work?
We currently offer a 4-week program (3 meals a week for 4 weeks for you and your caregiver), providing delicious, nutrient-dense, frozen, ready-to-eat meals free of cost to eligible participants.
Each week during your 4-week program, eligible participants or their caregiver can pick up complete frozen meals at the Cape Wellness Collaborative, ready to be heated up and enjoyed! Recipes and nutrition facts will be provided for each meal.
