NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A group of volunteers is getting meals ready to serve to cancer patients undergoing treatment in the Nashville area.

The Meals 2 Heal program is a part of the Heimerdinger Foundation, which was founded by the wife of the late offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans Mike Heimerdinger, who died of cancer in 2011.

Tuesday, volunteers in the program put together organic whole food meals for two patients undergoing cancer treatment.

The group says the food is specially prepared to help boost the immune systems of those patients.

At the same time, volunteers get to see the benefits of their hard work.

"The teenagers are getting to develop an interest in helping people and seeing the impact it can have from the kitchen into our community," said Waller McInnes, with the group.

Meals 2 Heal is delivering the food to the cancer patients tomorrow evening.
