Home-delivered Medically Tailored Meals and Nutrition

Project Angel Food

Grant: $30,000

With a grant from Tower Cancer Research Foundation, Project Angel Food will provide home-delivered, medically tailored meals and nutrition for chronically and terminally ill Los Angeles County residents diagnosed with cancer in need of services, many of whom are struggling with hunger, isolation, and their life-threatening illness. Project Angel Food prepares and delivers healthy meals to feed people impacted by serious illness, bringing comfort and hope every day. Renewed support from Tower will contribute directly toward the annual preparation of 140,000 meals to more than 500 Los Angeles County residents debilitated by cancer. Encompassing 20% of all primary diagnosis of our nearly 2,400 clients, cancer remains one of our two top illnesses of the people we serve. Weekly distribution and delivery of medically tailored meals to the homes of critically ill clients and nutritional counseling by a registered dietitian, begin with an initial assessment by a registered dietitian upon enrollment, followed by routine check-ins. Clients receive a customized menu prepared by professional chefs unique to their diagnosis and co-morbidities and aligned with their dietary restrictions and preferences. Striving to be as respectful and unobtrusive as possible, drivers will deliver seven-days-worth of meals directly to the client’s household during the same four-hour window each week.
