Spent week at Nourish Retreat learning about innovations from cohort members across Canada- looking forward to building our Alberta initiative
I recently returned from a national retreat with Nourish cohort and mentors. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with others who are passionate about health promoting food to enhance patient experiences and health. I learned a lot from my Nourish colleagues and have been sharing the stories about their journeys with my Nourish project co-leads. My co-leads and I are regularly meeting with each other and key stakeholders to explore the option of sourcing more locally grown produce. We are looking at a potential partnership with a social enterprise to wash, peel and dice the produce to our specifications and deliver to our institutions. We have also had some initial conversations with a food policy liaison officer regarding inspection of this process and traceability. We are still in very early discussion but excited about the potential opportunities!
