When your treatment for cancer begins, everything can change. Not only your perspective, but everything you know in day-to-day life—meals are no exception. Your mealtime routines, the food you’re supposed to eat, even how your food tastes. In spite of these changes, mealtime is a small opportunity that can make a big impact: It’s a chance to bring consistency into lives that have been turned upside down by a cancer diagnosis and the treatment that follows.
That’s why, in honor of our 20th year partnering with the American Cancer Society®, Pampered Chef is proud to focus our support on the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge® program. Hope Lodge communities are a free home away from home for cancer patients and their caregivers. The Hope Lodge program provides a supportive, home-like environment where guests can share a meal, join in the evening’s activities, or relax in their private rooms.
2 Ways You Can Give Hope
Here are a few ways you can contribute to the campaign.
1. Shop for the Cause
For every designated product purchased in May, we’ll contribute $1 to the Hope Lodge program.
2. Host a Fundraiser
When you host a Help Whip Cancer® fundraiser in May, up to 25% of the total sales will be contributed to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge program. You and your friends can shop, try a delicious recipe, and help to cover operating costs of Hope Lodge facilities that let people undergoing cancer treatment and their caregiver stay near their hospitals at no expense.
How We’re Giving More
Pampered Chef is sending a set amount of our products to each of the over 30 Hope Lodge kitchens across the country so that Hope Lodge guests, as well as volunteers, have access to kitchen products to help them prepare meals in their home-away-from home.
