Living with cancer during coronavirus

Helping people undergoing cancer treatment to eat well during the pandemic

We partnered with Life Kitchen to provide free online cookery classes. We're also providing virtual dietary support groups for people affected by cancer during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Online cookery classes with Life Kitchen

During the cookery classes, chef Ryan Riley (co-founder of Life Kitchen) will teach you how to cook some amazing, healthy recipes from our Ryan Riley recipe booklet, as well as practical, flavour-enhancing cooking techniques that can help with taste changes often associated with cancer.

Our registered oncology dietitian, Adele Hug, shares specialist dietary advice and specific ways to tailor the recipes to suit your needs.

These classes have now finished but are still available to watch on Instagram and Facebook.

Eat well during cancer online support group

We know it can be really difficult to know what to eat when you are going through cancer. That's why we are also offering extra support for those who may need it.

You can join our FREE private group sessions with our oncologist dietician, Adele Hug. She will talk you through how you can eat well during cancer and give you tailored advice on what you can eat to help you with some of the side-effects you might be experiencing. You will also receive a digital pack of resources to take away.

This free support group takes place monthly. For more information on how to join email us at publichealth@wcrf.org.

About Life Kitchen

Life Kitchen was set up as a free, UK-wide cooking school to help people living with cancer by teaching cooking skills and providing recipes that help to restore the pleasure they get from food by focusing on taste.

This is an important issue as cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and certain medications can affect the way foods and drinks taste, as can cancer itself.

Recipes by Life Kitchen help to tackle the loss of taste and enjoyment from food in those living with cancer by using ingredients that enhance the flavour of each dish.
