Cuisine for Healing Certified Meals

Low-income Outreach Food Program clients referred by medical partners who are undergoing or recuperating from medical treatment receive up to 10 nutritious, delicious meals per week, delivered to their homes for up to 12
weeks (75% of meals served). Reasonably priced meals are also available for purchase online and at our office. All meals may be delivered at no charge by CFH volunteers. In 2017 CFH served 14,815 meals to 350 clients and provided 365 hours of education to 255 clients, caregivers and community members.

Strict Certified Meal Guidelines set CFH apart from other area services delivering meals to needy populations. Meals are designed for optimal health by our
nutritionist, Dana Farrell, RN, CCN, CHC, who brings 30-plus years of experience in her field. Ingredients are fresh and organic, with no additives,
preparation techniques or packaging linked to life-threatening conditions. Our program also allows clients to personalize menu selections.

We continue to take steps to increase sales through our Meals for Purchase program, which supports our Outreach Food Program for low-income clients. With the addition of our Healthy Box Lunch program, we are targeting a 26 percent increase in Meals for Purchase revenue in 2018. Additional 2018 goals are to serve 420 clients with 18,000 meals, along with 510 hours of nutritional education for 340 clients, and to reduce/eliminate our client waiting list.
