Launch of the Breast Cancer Support Fund's Meal Support Program
The Meal Support Program is a new program developed to provide healthy, nutritious meals to low-income breast cancer patients who are struggling with a critical economic burden because of their breast cancer diagnosis.
This new initiative will help vulnerable patients by providing access to healthy, nutritious meals during the time they are in treatment.
The Program provides nutritious prepared dinners for free to patients who live in the community where they are being treated and for patients who have to travel from out-of-town for treatment.
Nutrition is a critical part of health and healing, so it’s vital that anyone going through cancer treatment, surgery, and recovery have consistent access to nutritious food. Healthy meals provide provide nutrients and antioxidants necessary for energy and healthy cell regeneration which supports the immune system.

The Meal Support Program serves women who are being treated for breast cancer at Health Science North in Sudbury, Ontario and at QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The program provides for low-income single women and single mothers and their children.
We are currently seeking additional funding to expand the program to other cities.
