Health Sciences North
Health Sciences North (HSN) is a network of integrated facilities and programs working to deliver patient care, research, teaching and learning to Sudbury region and beyond. Kathy Berger, Nutrition Manager at Health Sciences North, aims to “increase the amount of fresh, Ontario vegetables versus frozen on [their] patient menu, in order to enhance the taste profile and encourage healthy eating”. To this end, Kathy’s efforts to cooperate with a local distributor have also had wider reaching benefits. “Ontario products are available to organizations, but not all suppliers have information readily available or what they do have is not always user friendly. We started asking our local distributor, Harvest King, to report their local content… and now they’re sending everyone invoices that break down local options. We’re excited to be helping to create this kind of shift.”
