The Center’s nutritionists will help you follow a healthy diet during and after your cancer treatment. They have special training in oncology and nutrition, and base their advice on scientifically sound nutrition research. We also offer additional online information, based on your specific cancer type.
Patients at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Covington facing food or financial struggles brought on by a cancer diagnosis can maintain a diverse and nutritious diet through the therapeutic food pantry. The program serves two purposes: providing sustenance to those facing food insecurity and allowing patients with special nutritional needs access to a wide variety of freezer and long-shelf life items. Fueled by generosity from the community, the food pantry has expanded its offerings through a partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans.
