GMO-free hommus given at breast cancer events

HAVERHILL — Aimee Tsakirellis, director of marketing at Cedar’s Mediterranean Food Inc., will hand out samples of Cedar’s hommus and crackers again this year at the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition’s 22nd annual Metro-Boston “Against the Tide” swim, walk, run, and/or kayak event on June 21 at Hopkinton State Park, and on Aug. 16 at the 15th annual Cape Cod Against the Tide event at Nickerson State Park in Brewster.

Tsakirellis, a 2008 graduate of Merrimack College, has helped Cedar’s Hommus become the only hommus in the country to become Non-GMO Project Verified. She continues to educate consumers of the direct link Mediterranean foods have to cancer prevention. She will volunteer in honor and memory of her grandmother, who died last year after a long battle with breast cancer.

Tsakirellis, who lives in Haverhill with her husband, Sokratis, and their doxiepoo puppy, Oresti, is an active volunteer with various animal shelters for stray, abused, and neglected animals in Greece.

Currently, MBCC is the only breast cancer organization locally or nationally that focuses on breast cancer prevention. The statewide Against the Tide events generate funds towards this goal and MBCC’s work in community education, research advocacy, and public policy change.
