    What the partnership means
    Improving the lives of those affected by cancer is the mutual goal that brought these two organizations together. Two together is stronger than one alone.

    The American Cancer Society together with its Hope Lodges are making HORMEL VITAL CUISINE™ products accessible to those in their care at locations all over the country and we are sponsoring Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events from coast to coast. These events will raise awareness and help bring nutrition during treatment to the forefront.

    Hand in hand HORMEL VITAL CUISINE™ products and the American Cancer Society® will bring awareness and change to the community. Helping those without nutritional resources and promoting overall health for all affected by cancer.

    The synergy is undeniable and we are excited to see the amazing things that will be done as a result of this exciting new partnership.

  • PUMP-UP THE PROTEIN!

    Has your doctor or dietitian talked to you about increasing your protein intake? It is common for older adults to struggle with eating adequate amounts of protein and total intake of protein has been shown to decline with age. This can be related to appetite and taste changes, cost of high quality meats, difficulty chewing, or decreased energy for cooking. Unfortunately, as we age we lose lean body mass, which can lead to increased weakness, delayed wound healing, and decreased immune function*. Getting enough protein in your diet can be vitally important. Continue reading

    Did you know that your body actually needs more calcium and Vitamin D as you age? That means many people have to work harder to get enough of these important nutrients in their diets. What’s the risk of getting too little? Inadequate levels have been linked to everything from high blood pressure to brittle bones.
