Food for Life: Cancer Project

The Power of Food for Cancer Prevention and Survival

Certain diet patterns seem to have a major effect in helping cancer survivors to live longer, healthier lives. Reviews by the American Institute for Cancer Research showed that as much as 40 percent of cancer risk may be related to diet.  Numerous studies have shown that a diet built from plant foods offers the most cancer-fighting protection of any diet plan.The Food for Life: Cancer Project classes offer a unique opportunity to learn about the link between diet and cancer, experience the benefits of plant-based nutrition, and gain the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. In the Food for Life: Cancer Project classes, attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes.

Featured Class Topics

  • Introduction to How Foods Fight Cancer
  • Fueling Up on Low-Fat, High-Fiber Foods
  • Favoring Fiber
  • Discovering Dairy Alternatives

Class is held over two dates: Monday, July 15th and Monday, July 22nd, starting at 10:30 am each day.  We will finish by about 3:30 pm with breaks and lots of great snacks throughout the day!

Her communication is clear, and she has patience and a kind way with words. This combined with her passion for health and nutrition makes her a great role model in the food and health industry.”

Organizer

Kerri Zemko, RN, BSN, OCN

Kerri Zemko has worked in oncology, clinical research, and several other areas of health care.  Through the Food for Life classes designed by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and with her other classes and projects known as Vital Veg, she offers nutrition and cooking classes, inspiration, and consulting.  

With a lifelong interest in healthful living, Kerri really started cleaning up her act in 2008 when she learned about plant-based (vegan) diet, decided to try it for a week, and never looked back.  After experiencing leaps in all aspects of wellbeing, which she had never anticipated or thought possible, Kerri is grateful and joyful to be involved in helping others experience the same.

Whether you're interested in a group Food for Life class or personalized consultation through Vital Veg, Kerri is a fantastic resource for taking healthier steps.
