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 residents of Wellesley and adjacent towns who are currently undergoing cancer treatments.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.
