OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE

Updated January 25, 2021

COVID-19 HUNGER RELIEF FREE FOOD DISTRIBUTION PILOT PROGRAM

The unprecedented pandemic has increase demand for nutritious meals by our local cancer patients facing economical hardship and experiencing hunger. Prostate Cancer Resource recognizes the impact our senior citizens are facing due to COVID-19. In response to the disease, we are proud to announce the expansion of its free COVID-19 Hunger Relief Free Medical Food Pilot Program, which started five months ago to prevent hunger and malnutrition.

The free medical food distribution service is a lifeline for our elderly and less fortunate who are "often" invisible; living on the margin; "embarrassed" to go to the local food bank; "struggling" to put food on the table and make monthly rent payment.

Our agency projects the number of local cancer patients and survivors facing hunger and malnutrition in the coming 12 months will rise above 10,000. The situation is especially critical to patients with life threatening health issues. Prostate Cancer Resource will continue to provide this essential service for the long-term as the nation recover from the impact of the pandemic.
