Nourish Webinar: Collaborative Projects Public Kickoff

Are you interested by the role that better food can play in delivering better health care? The Nourish leadership program has kicked off 5 collaborative projects and is looking for your engagement.

Each team approaches a different dimension of the disconnect between food in health care, for example: better understanding the patient experience of food in health, and addressing barriers to sustainable, local, and traditional food that supports health and healing. Specifically, their work relates to:

  • Increasing the sector’s ability to deliver Traditional & Country Food Programs for Indigenous patients and residents
  • Developing a Sustainable Menu Guide to help the sector decrease its ecological impact and support social and economic wellbeing
  • Creating a more enabling policy environment for a Food is Health approach in health care
  • Developing National RFP Models for values-based healthcare food purchasing
  • Researching strategies for benchmarking National Patient Satisfaction/Experience with Food Services

Soil from a landscaping project was used to enclose the whole structure. Twenty bags of leaves provide insulation around the doorway which is a surplus piece of galvanized metal lath purposed to keep out critters. In spring the leaves get turned into the soil to grow more vegetables. ... See MoreSee Less
