The Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project this fall has brought back its Meals2Heal program, a collaboration between WCPP volunteers, Wellesley restaurants, and Newton-Wellesley Hospital to deliver fresh and local meals to residents of Wellesley and adjacent towns who are undergoing cancer treatments.
The WCCP has partnered with nutritionists at Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s Vernon Cancer Center to select menu options from participating 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 recipient’s name and telephone number, and the restaurant will contact a WCPP volunteer to deliver the meal per its posted delivery schedule at http://wcpponline.org/index.php/new-volunteers-for-meals2heal/.
Please note: when ordering from The Local, please also contact one of the volunteers listed at the website link above to schedule meal delivery.
Meals2Heal will run through June 2017, break for the summer and resume in September 2017.
If you’d like to volunteer to be a Meals2Heal driver, email firstname.lastname@example.org: only 1-2 hours per week is required.
