Mission and History
The mission of Meals OnCol is to improve the quality of life among those undergoing cancer treatment by directly delivering nutritious and appealing food.
Meals OnCol was started by Dr. Allison Litton in April 2018. Dr. Litton holds a bachelor and master’s degree in social work and a master’s and doctorate in public health. She has 15 years of experience in cancer education and evaluation methods. She saw a need for several years to deliver meals to people going through cancer to alleviate the side effects from treatment. However, it was the cancer diagnosis of several close friends that inspired her to start Meals OnCol in Birmingham, Alabama.
