Positive Community Kitchen provides beautiful, delicious and nourishing meals to people in our community who are in crisis due to a life-threatening illness such as cancer.
When you’re facing a serious illness, being well-nourished is very important. Our meals are designed to support you when your health and appetite are compromised.
Eating enough healthy food when you’re ill can help:
Reduce time spent in the hospital
Increase the effectiveness of medications
Improve overall quality of life
Thanks to our many volunteer and the financial support of our donors, these meals are free of charge and delivered directly to our clients’ homes.
Please contact our Client Manager and a Client Liaison will communicate with you about your situation, your needs and determine if PCK is a good fit for you or your loved one.
Once you become a client, one of our Client Liaisons will call to schedule an in-person meeting so that you understand the full range of services that we offer.
Your Client Liaison will remain in contact with you on a regular basis while you are receiving meals to insure that the meals we send are as nourishing as possible.
Food is the heart of The Positive Community Kitchen’s work. We believe that food is an important source to help in healing and the foundation to long term health and well-being.
The link between diet and health is now undeniable, and many studies have shown that how cancer patients eat during treatment can both reduce side effects and increase treatment effectiveness. At least as important is the power of food to help us feel nourished and cared for.
In the kitchen, teens & adults work hard to prepare food that is beautiful, delicious and nutrient-dense.
The meals we provide are designed around the latest understanding of how diet supports our health. We follow the American Institute of Cancer Research’s recommendation that 2/3 of your diet be plant based. On top of that, we focus on foods that whole (rather than processed) organic and locally grown. All of our poultry, eggs, dairy, grains, beans, soy products and at least 90 percent of our produce is organically grown. We make all of our sauces and salad dressings from scratch.
