NASHVILLE, Tenn., -- Meals 4 Health and Healing, the signature program of The Heimerdinger Foundation, a Nashville-based nonprofit providing nutrient-rich meals and education, free of charge, for families facing cancer, announces the publication of a new cookbook: Nourishing Community, Healing Recipes Made with LoveThis collection of healing recipes, created in collaboration with Ceres Community Project Affiliate Partners, is an amazing collection of recipes and inspiring stories from across the country featuring immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory meals for people who are in medical crisis. 
 
The purchase of this cookbook supports the work of Meals 4 Health and Healing – which includes the delivery of nutrient-dense meals to people (and their families) in Davidson and Williamson Counties, nutrition education, and youth development, as both youth and adult volunteers are key to the work of the program. Filled with 100 diverse immune-boosting, mission-inspired recipes as well as cooking and nutrition basics, Nourishing Community represents what the nonprofit’s volunteers make and deliver to cancer patients undergoing cancer treatment and their caregivers each week. The recipes featured range from soups and salads to desserts and entrees, including vegetarian, poultry, seafood and beef selections.

Since 2013, The Heimerdinger Foundation has served over 125,000 meals to hundreds of clients and their caregivers in Williamson and Davidson Counties through the Meals 4 Health and Healing program. 
 
Research shows that nearly 80% of cancer patients end up malnourished as a result of cancer treatment. Consuming nourishing meals can make a vital difference to cancer patients as they fight their illness and heal from treatment. With an emphasis on serving those who are in crisis, who have little or no caregiving support, or who are financially unable to provide themselves with nutritious foods, the program elevates the recovery process for many who may be at high risk for malnutrition, which can slow down or stop treatment. 
 
In addition, with over 250 active teen and adult volunteers participating in their program each year, the organization educates those volunteers about eating a “whole food” diet to reduce inflammation and to reduce the likelihood of chronic, inflammatory conditions like cancer. By educating patients, their families, and the adult and teen volunteers who provide the giving hands and hearts behind the organization’s mission, the eight-person team at The Heimerdinger Foundation is transforming the health and nutritional choices of countless people in middle Tennessee.

About The Heimerdinger Foundation:

Research shows that nearly 80% of people facing cancer end up malnourished as a result of treatment. Being poorly nourished worsens side effects, reduces the effectiveness of or can stop treatment, and lengthens recovery time once treatment ends. Since its inception, the organization has served over 125,000 meals to clients and their caregivers in Davidson and Williamson counties and educated hundreds of volunteer adults and teens about proper, healing nutrition for life through its Meals 4 Health and Healing organic garden, kitchen, and meal delivery program.
