Breast CancerPatient FoodAssistance

The Breast Cancer Patient Food Assistance Program provides food assistance to women in need going through treatment for breast cancer. The Food Bank delivers the food directly to their homes.

These foods are specially selected to address the unique nutritional needs of patients in treatment or recovery and include other healthful items, especially fresh produce, that their limited budgets cannot accommodate. This program, funded by a private donor, addresses a critical need of struggling patients and their families, relieving them of the burden of worrying about the when’s, what’s, and ifs of their next meals, so they can focus on treatment.

Eligible women can sign up for this program through the Breast Cancer Assistance Group of Monterey County, which provides support and assistance to women undergoing treatment or recovery from breast cancer.
