Fish sales to boost cancer services



BAR HARBOR — One dollar from the sale of every fresh fish entrée of the night at Mache Bistro from June 2-23 will support Healthy Acadia and the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center’s cancer prevention, education and treatment services.

This partnership is part of Healthy Acadia’s Hungry for Health 2017 campaign to Challenge Cancer Downeast, which enables community members to make a difference just by dining out. This is the second year of the annual campaign, which addresses a critical community health need each year.

“Our family has experienced the loss of friends and loved ones to cancer,” said Marie Yarborough, co-owner of Mache Bistro.

“We are happy to give to local organizations like Healthy Acadia and the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center in their support of keeping our communities healthy, in body and mind.”

Mache Bistro features local, organic ingredients in their menu items, as well as a twist on casual bistro dishes and pub fare. Visit machebistro.com.

Healthy Acadia and the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center recently launched a Cancer Patient Navigator Program funded in part through a Maine Cancer Foundation grant. This service provides caring, effective support for individuals facing cancer. Healthy Acadia also offers a wide variety of cancer- and other chronic disease-prevention services to reduce the likelihood of a cancer diagnosis.

Funds from Mache Bistro and other restaurants’ participation in the Hungry for Health 2017 campaign will enable Healthy Acadia and the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center to continue and to build these services.
