Food for Life Hawaii
Bringing the Power of Food for Health to the Island of Oahu
The Food for Life program is a community-based nutrition education program of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). With more than a million people being diagnosed with cancer and 25 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the United States each year, there is an urgent need for a new direction in battling diseases. The Food for Life program is an innovative approach to a medical challenge. It aims first to prevent disease. If disease has been diagnosed, it works for improving survival. Designed by physicians, nutrition experts, and registered dietitians, each of our curricula includes information about how certain foods and nutrients work to promote health and fight disease. The classes work to translate complex scientific nutrition information into simple and easy meals. Launched in 2001, the program was meant to help cancer survivors take advantage of the healing power of foods. Since then, the program has grown to include classes focused on diabetes, children’s health, corporate wellness and healthy weight management.
