A meal with heart gives hope...

Project Angel Heart ClientsAccess to a nutritious meal shouldn't be a worry for people with cancer, HIV/AIDS, kidney or heart disease, or other serious illnesses. But many who are ill find themselves with little to eat. Some are unable to cook. Others find they must choose between food and medicine to make ends meet. 

That's why, with help from thousands of community members, Project Angel Heart prepares and delivers delicious, medically tailored meals--free of charge--to Coloradans coping with life-threatening illness. Our meals are designed to improve their quality of life and the effectiveness of their medical treatments.
