Toxic Chemicals in Wellesley?  Come to April 5 Movie & Discussion


Toxins in Personal Care Products


Join us at this important April 5, 2017 movie screening at the Wellesley Library…

The Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project ( ) and the Wellesley Free Library are jointly sponsoring a FREE screening and discussion of  “STINK” – the award-winning documentary the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see!!

After giving his daughters new pajamas for Christmas  and noticing a “foul smell” when opening the packages, father and filmmaker Jon Whelan began what The Boston Globe called “a Michael Moore-type investigation” to expose toxic chemicals in common household goods (e.g. “Axe” body spray, perfumes, shampoos, clothing, etc).



















Increases in incidence of diseases like cancer, reproductive problems, obesity and diabetes, parallels the growth hidden toxic chemicals in products in our homes!

Ordering Meals2Heal

Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project delivering healthy meals for MetroWest cancer patients

This fall (2016), the Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project ( has brought back its popular Meals2Heal program.

Launched in Spring 2016, Meals2Heal is an innovative collaboration between WCPP volunteers, Wellesley-based restaurants, and Newton Wellesley Hospital to deliver fresh and local meals to people currently undergoing cancer treatments in our community.


Since a healthy diet reduces the risk of many types of cancer, the WCCP has partnered with nutritionists at Newton Wellesley Hospital’s Vernon Cancer Center to select menu options from these participating Meals2Heal restaurants in Wellesley: Captain Marden’s, Susu Bakery, and The Local.

To order a meal for a cancer patient, simply call the restaurant between the hours of 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday-Friday, supply the recipients’ name and telephone number and the restaurant will contact a WCPP volunteer to deliver the meal per its posted delivery schedule at

  • Captain Marden’s Seafood 781 235 3737
  • Susu Bakery Boutique 781-237-7977
  • The Local: (781) 694-1210

Please note: when ordering from The Local, please also contact one of the volunteers listed at the URL above to schedule meal delivery.

Meals2Heal will run through June 2017, break for the summer and resume in September 2017.

For more about Meals2Heal:  Check out this video interview with Chef Brian, Culinary Director at The Local for a peek at some of the delicious meals he’s serving up:
