Bites of Hope aims to start a global awakening, bringing awareness to the powerful link between the healing power of nutrition and cancer. . www.bitesofhope.org Mission
www.bitesofhope.org Focus on Food We focus solely on nutrition, as opposed to a large group of modalities. Our personalized and targeted in-home and community-based programs allow local volunteers to effectively tailor programs.
www.bitesofhope.org Science There is a growing body of evidence supporting the link between nutrition and healing, as well as pointing to the success of personalized and community-based public health initiatives. We connect nutrition to public health frameworks to create sustainable progress.
