In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Living Journeys started a new food program for clients and their families. We worked with local chefs, restaurants, and farmers’ markets to provide home delivery boxes of produce and healthy meals. From March to December 2020, we delivered over 360 “Boxes of Love” (fresh produce) and 2,130 “Dinners of Love” to 44 families (over 120 people) in Gunnison Valley. We also hosted an oncology nutritionist on multiple occasions to teach our clients and caregivers about the role nutrition can play in cancer treatment.
In 2021, we aimed even higher, providing 3000 homemade meals to our clients in the thick of treatment or needing support while recovering. Nothing says “we’re here for you” quite like a homemade meal!
