Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Cancer Prevention And Research Fund was established to measure the Cancer preventing effect of providing impoverished families a diet that is predominately Fruits and Vegetables thru a food assistance program providing only fruits and vegetables. Because these families are dependent on the Fruits and Vegetables that are provided them. This unique situation will allow us to do a long term study of the Cancer prevention effects of a diet rich in Fruits and Vegetables. Scientific research concludes that the best diet for preventing prostate cancer is one that is low in fat and high in vegetables and fruits. Overall, one-third of the most common cancers could be prevented. (Policy and Action for Cancer Prevention Report, 2009)

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Cancer Prevention and Research Fund colaborates with a host site (Church, School or civic group) who provides between 20 and 40 volunteers and identifys people in the community who will come and select up to 60 lbs of produce that they will deliver to people they have identified who are in need. A semi load of 7 to 15 varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables is set up on tables where the community agents can select the produce they will distribute to people in need in their community.

We provided 2,650 lbs of produce, valued at $4,400 provided 2,209 meals, serving 133 at risk families
