In partnership with Gilda’s Toronto, Chef Amy Symington created these resources for the many individuals and families impacted by cancer each year and those who work to support those living with cancer. Good nutrition is an essential foundation for health, particularly when facing the healthcare challenges that a cancer diagnosis can have. Gilda’s Toronto aims to make evidence-based nutrition information and practical and satisfying recipes accessible to those in need.
The inspiration for these resources was born of the passion of Gilda’s Toronto’s own Chef Amy Symington and the Supper Club Program she ran for Gilda’s Toronto members. Obtaining a grant from the Social Sciences and Health Research Council (Canada) through George Brown College enabled all these resources to come to fruition. Both the Community Guide to Cancer Nutrition and the Companion Cookbook is free to download from the links below.
The Long Table Cookbook is also available at the bottom of this page. Proceeds go to Gilda’s Toronto when acquired from our website.
