Free Food and Nutrition Services for Los Angeles County Residents Struggling with Cancer

Project Angel Food

Grant: $33,000

With Tower’s help, Project Angel Food is providing home delivered medically tailored meal services and medical nutritional therapy for clients recovering from cancer. Project Angel Food’s registered dietitians will conduct routine counseling sessions every three to four months after the client’s enrollment in the meal service to track progress toward the attainment of goals established during the initial nutritional assessment. The meal program serves low-income Los Angeles County residents diagnosed with cancer who are medically and financially at risk for malnourishment and starvation.  The elimination of food security-related stress enables the clients to focus on healing and recuperation with dignity in the privacy of their own homes.
