SHARE

The Samaritan Cancer Program is offering a nutrition series for cancer survivors called “That’s My Farmer” that teaches healthy shopping, eating locally and the impact of fresh, wholesome foods.

The series offers participants vouchers for fresh produce from the farmers market, a recipe book and engaging presentations from registered dietitians from the Samaritan Cancer Program. Local cancer survivors are welcome, no matter where they received treatment.

Sessions begin May 10. The cost to enroll is $20 per cancer survivor, and attendees can sign up for the Albany, Corvallis or Lebanon series. Sessions take place at Samaritan-affiliated locations and local farmers markets:

Corvallis: May 10 to June 24 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and 9 to 10 a.m. Saturdays

Albany: May 31 to July 15 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and 9 to 10 a.m. Saturdays

Lebanon: July 25 to Sept. 7 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and 5 to 6 p.m. Thursdays
