Healing Circles™ for Breast Cancer Survivors and Caregivers: Empowering Individuals Through Food. 

Who: Patients and caregivers
How Long: One Day
Attendees: up to 30

Program Highlights

Create a group circle where participants will be invited to explore their relationship with a cornucopia of colorful whole foods, and explore their expectations around taste and flavor;

Form small groups where participants will prepare recipes that use these ingredients.  Once a dish is ready, participants will learn how to use the “taste and adjust” approach to experience how certain cancer-fighting seasonings can be added to make a dish more appealing to a personal palate.

Invite participants to join together for a meal, share their experiences and discuss how they can take what they have learned to build healing food circles in their own communities.

Culinary Cancer Guides™:  See One, Do One, Teach One

Who: Patients & Caregivers
How Long: Two-day workshop
Attendees: up to 16

Program Highlights

Identify breast cancer survivors and caregivers in the Johns Hopkins breast cancer community who would be trained to become culinary cancer guides (CCG’s).  These candidates could potentially mentor young breast cancer patients in the kitchen;

Expand CCG’s understanding of how nutritional science and food can become valuable resources to help others throughout their cancer journey;

Teach CCG’s how to translate cancer-fighting foods to the everyday plate by actively cooking so they can share their knowledge within their communities;

Provide materials and resources that will help newly trained culinary cancer guides to share their knowledge within their communities; 

Conduct an initial evaluation of the CCG’s experience of these sessions in order to refine and further develop subsequent programs, with the long-term goal that they will serve as models that can be used in their communities.

Goals

·       To train CCG’s to support young breast cancer survivors through community cooking support groups.

·       To empower CCG’s through active hands on training to facilitate their own cooking support groups.
