The BRUNCH Project
A collaboration between the Princess Margaret Hospital, the University Health Network and George Brown College to improve the lives of cancer patients.
The BRUNCH project is the result of a collaboration between the Princess Margaret Hospital, the University Health Network and George Brown College. BRUNCH (a shorthand for Building Recipes and Understanding Nutrition for Cancer-survivor Health) re-designs traditional family recipes for three ethnic groups facing a higher risk of colon cancer. These recipes were designed to be tasty and affordable while improving overall nutritional value. Feasibility testing was conducted at University Health Network’s ELLICSR facility and involved live demonstrations of the recipes to survivors. Home Use Testing kits were given out to collect feedback on flavour and ease of preparation. Led by Winnie Chiu, this project is also a taste of the groundbreaking Food Science undertaken by the Food Innovation and Research Studio (FIRSt) at George Brown.
