Main St. Missions, the nonprofit that supports the Corinne Sikora Wellness and Support Center, has secured a partnership with Organnons Natural Market, to provide healthy nutritional offerings at the to patients receiving treatment at the center.
The Corinne Sikora Wellness and Support Center is a 5,000-square-foot cancer center dedicated to patients, families and caregivers located at the Heritage Center in Buckingham.
Organnons, which has markets in Wrightstown and New Britain, will offer a custom nutritional cooking program and juice bar at the center. It also will provide organic products to support the food and nutrition program.
The cooking program will feature Bucks County chefs working side-by-side with the certified nutritionists and dietitians to prepare and cook healthy food for patients and their family and caregivers.

The program allows for participants to take home ingredients to replicate meals made for them at the center. A full-service, Organnons-sponsored juice station will provide a variety of fresh drinks, including kombucha, wheat grass, carrot and celery juice.
A “round up” fundraising campaign will continue during the month of May, where customers may “round up” the purchase of their orders at Organnons, with 100% of the proceeds to benefit the Corinne Sikora Wellness & Support Center.
The Corinne Sikora Wellness and Support Center provides non-medical services to meet the emotional, physical, social and lifestyle needs of cancer patients and their families. Offerings include nutrition classes, support groups, book clubs, acupuncture, energy treatment, counseling, yoga and fitness.
“We’ve known since Corinne envisioned the center, that food and nutrition would play a major role in the ecosystem of the center,” said Main St. Missions Executive Director Keith Fenimore. “We set out to find a partner who would supply the highest quality organic food, and do so as a 100% donation, which we realized was a very large ask. Kudos to Jim Gannon for looking beyond the bottom line and stepping up to ensure our program and patients thrive.”
The center’s fundraising efforts have already raised more than $300,000, half-way to the goal of $600,000. The nonprofit is seeking additional founding partners to join its efforts; contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
