LifeSavor: A Moving Feast
Announcing Our New Host Hotel
By David Waters, CEO  

 

Lifesavor 2013 logo
Twenty-one years ago, a group of ingenious volunteers invented LifeSavor as a series of fun dinner parties at area restaurants, celebrating the best food establishments in Boston and supporting our early efforts to feed sick neighbors dying from AIDS. Our mission and programming have expanded over the intervening years to feed those living with 35 different illnesses, including HIV/AIDS, in 18 cities across the Commonwealth. But LifeSavor's festive atmosphere and cost-effective fundraising have remained constant. 

For twenty years, the event has kicked off with a lavish cocktail reception for 800 guests generously donated by our good friend, Serge Denis, General Manager of the Langham Boston Hotel, followed by intimate dinners at 75 different upscale restaurants and a late night After Party back at the Langham. Through the generous hospitality of the Langham, Community Servings has raised over $7 million to feed our critically ill clients. But now the stately hotel in Post Office Square is retiring as our host and we're excited about a new hotel venue in a new part of the city!


Breast Cancer and Nutrition

 

bc
Have you been affected by breast cancer? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Many people know that eating a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses. But what is the nutrition prescription for people already diagnosed with breast cancer, undergoing breast cancer treatment, or in remission? Community Servings is introducing a new Breast Cancer Nutrition Workshop led by our Nutrition team. Join us on Tuesdays 5:30-7:00 p.m. this February and learn more about how to ease the side effects of breast cancer treatment, achieve and maintain a healthy weight, and cook healthfully on a budget. Learn more about these classes.
