About Magnolia Meals at Home
Magnolia Meals at Home, the first initiative of the Magnolia program, is a meal delivery program that aims to provide a nutritious foundation for patients living with breast cancer, thyroid cancer, kidney cancer or soft tissue sarcoma and their families. The goal of the program is to help ease the stress of daily living so that patients can enjoy shared moments with loved ones. The program is currently available in and around Woodcliff Lake, NJ, Andover, MA, Raleigh-Durham, NC and New Haven, CT (as well as areas in New York, New Hampshire and Boston, MA).
Eligible participants in the program will receive:
- Up to two months of home meal deliveries, each of which will include ten meals that are designed to help meet the nutritional needs of people living with cancer
- Up to ten additional meals for their family members, if requested by the participant
- CancerCare, Cancer Support Community and Cornucopia Cancer Support Center will identify patients, determine their eligibility for Magnolia Meals at Home, secure their consent, and enroll them into the program
- Patient name and relevant contact information will be provided to Meals on Wheels America through the online enrollment system
- Meals on Wheels America will then reach out to program participants to set up meal deliveries, organize a schedule and provide the meals to participants’ homes
- An optional survey may be included with meal deliveries or mailed separately to you
