Magnolia Meals at Home
is a new pilot program that delivers free nutritional meals to households affected by breast cancer so that families can spend more time together.
A partnership between Magnolia: the Eisai Women’s Oncology Program, Cancer Support Community (CSC), CancerCare, and Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA), this program is currently available in and around two pilot cities, Andover, Massachusetts and Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.
Eligible participants in the program will receive up to two months of home meal deliveries, each of which will include ten meals that are designed to help meet the nutritional needs of people living with breast cancer, and up to ten additional meals for their family members, if requested by the participant.
Feedback from this pilot program will help evaluate its success and improve it to better suit participants’ needs.
