August 24 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

With Laura Pole, RN, MSN, PCNS

I would like to personally dedicate this class in memory of our dear participant and friend Leah Fitchue, who did everything she did with gusto, including eating my food!

Getting well never tasted so good! 

Come savor together the last days of summer and celebrate your life, challenges and all, in a day filled with learning, cooking, eating and savoring in good company. Menu items to include grilled fish or tempeh tacos, watermelon gazpacho, fresh grilled peaches and more. Chef Laura awaits you in the Healing Kitchen to celebrate life with nourishment!

*Please Note: Every individual’s needs are unique. We aim to offer a variety of health-promoting options for each individual to consider, but do not prescribe the specific dietary content of any program for anyone.

Suggested donation: $25, includes a health-supportive meal and all recipes

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
