Breast Cancer Patients To Receive Carepacks From Hormel Foods
Hormel Foods advocates for good causes and donated 1,000 highly-nutritious and ready-to-eat meal Carepacks to the Cancer Nutrition Consortioum (CNC). This initiative came about in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast cancer patients were the recipients of these Carepacks which consists of protein shakes, whey protein supplement packets and a shaker bottle.
Deb DiCarlo, vice president of sales and marketing at Hormel Health Labs confirmed the company’s contribution.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with the CNC through this incredible program to enhance the quality of life for people undergoing cancer treatment, and for the loved ones who care for them,” said Ms. DiCarlo.
The free meals were exclusively prepared by Hormel Foods team members as part of their efforts to support breast cancer awareness month.
The Carepacks were both tasty and very nutritious.
