Hospital wheeling out new food program for patients


The Lake of the Woods District Hospital is rolling out a new meal room service program. In July 2014, the hospital did a waste audit to look at how much food they throw out. They found out the hospital has about a 40 per cent waste rate. Once food heads out of the kitchen, they can’t reuse food that comes back untouched. For example, in the summer they wasted two crates of milk a day.
