Measuring the Impact of MANNA’s Medically Tailored Meal Program in Patients with a Non-Terminal Cancer Diagnosis

The MANNA Institute is seeking proposals from organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region interested in applying for one of three pilot grants of up to $50,000 each, awarded for a period of one (1) year.  Proposals were due March 31, 2021.

The purpose of this RFP and the potential awarding of each Pilot is to:

  • Measure the impact of MANNA’s medically tailored meal program and nutrition counseling services on a defined population of patients who each have a non-terminal cancer diagnosis; and
  • Identify appropriate outcomes and potential evaluation tools that can be used to build a robust clinical trial protocol.

For any questions, please contact Dr. Jule Anne Henstenburg at or Adrian Glass at
