Critical Illness Nutrition Program

Print PageSent to a Friend


The Critical Illness Nutrition program reaches out to the residents of San Diego County who are under the age of 60 who have any type of cancer that impairs their mental and/or physical capacity to prepare their own meals.

Three nutritional meals a day, for every day of the year, are prepared and delivered to our clients' homes.  The program is at no cost to the client. 

Referral from a Case Manager, Social Worker or Physician is required. Ongoing client contact by the referral source is required in order to recertify client eligibility for services every six (6) months.

Clients must meet the following eligibility qualifications:

  • Client must be mentally or physically unable to prepare meals for themselves
  • A current diagnosis letter identifying the type of cancer must be provided by a physician
  • Client must be a resident of San Diego County and under the age of 60
  • Client must provide documentation of current income


The Breast Cancer Outreach Project reaches out to residents of San Diego County, under the age of 60, who have breast cancer and cannot prepare their own meals. Meals are delivered to their dependent children, too.

Supported by the San Diego Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Breast Cancer Outreach Project also raises awareness about the Critical Illness Nutrition Program. The goal is to connect eligible San Diegans with this life-saving service.


Since our first day of operations, we have never turned away anyone who qualifies for our services and we are determined that we never will.
