In other cities, the course has attracted people who want to try to prevent cancer, have survived cancer and caregivers, said Lynda Roy, Food for Life instructor, who will lead the class.
The Cancer Project advocates a vegetarian lifestyle.
The first class is free. If persons want to sign up for the series, which is the three consecutive Thursdays, it's $45 for the series.
"The focus is a low-fat, high-fiber, plant-based, whole-foods diet. With an emphasis on low gylcemic index so it helps with diabetes as well. And an emphasis on raw, fresh produce when possible," said Roy.
