Canadian Cancer Society

A new program from the Canadian Cancer Society aims to help people replace their smoking habit with some healthy habits. The Cooking to Quit program, launching February 2019 in Stratford and Summerside, provides smokers with training in cooking and nutrition as a way to ease the discomfort of leaving nicotine behind.

Supported with a Wellness Grant from the PEI Department of Health and Wellness, the Cooking to Quit program is being offered in conjunction with dietitians from the local Sobeys grocery stores. Sessions will include an introduction to some of seasonings and spices available at the grocery.

Certified tobacco educators will be part of the program. Participants will be offered a “quit kit” to assist with the process. They also hope to have the group come together another night of the week as a walking group.

Sessions will be offered in Stratford, February 11 and 25, and March 4, and in Summerside February 15 and 22, and March 1 and 8. For information contact Jayna Stokes, Provincial Lead, Canadian Cancer Society at 566-1713, ext 2231 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. All smokers and ex-smokers are encouraged to contact the Cancer Society and register for the program. Peer support welcome.
