Vermont Business Magazine Healthy Living Market and Cafe has partnered with Hope Lodge in Burlington to provide educational resources for patients and their families. Hope Lodge offers free lodging to cancer patients undergoing treatment at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Through this partnership, patients have access to information and recipes to make nutritious food choices while undergoing cancer treatment, and making healthy changes that they'll then take home with them once they leave treatment. Not only are we stressing the importance of making healthy, nutritious food choices, we're showing folks how they can implement changes into their everyday life.
“Healthy Living put a lot of time and passion into this project to provide healthy options and materials for our guests. We are so proud of this partnership and thankful to be a part of a bigger community that is focused on educated choices and personal wellbeing.” Said Angela Putnam, manager of Hope Lodge.
Eli Lesser-Goldsmith, owner of Healthy Living Market and Cafe, added: "Healthy Living is proud to partner with the American Cancer Society and Hope Lodge on this program. Giving cancer patients and their families access to education and recipes surrounding their treatment is part of the healing process. We are so fortunate to have Hope Lodge in our Community and to be aligned with them on this"

About Hope Lodge:
Hope Lodge offers free, temporary housing for cancer patients and their families who are undergoing treatment. More than a place to stay, Hope Lodge is a home away from home, offering a comfortable and supportive environment for encouragement and healing. Getting emotional and social support from other survivors can be as important as getting the proper medical care. At Hope Lodge, guests share similar experiences, and are supported by caring staff and volunteers.
