Health Sciences North, Sudbury

It may appear that sourcing local product in Northern Ontario would be a challenge, but Health Sciences North is already sourcing all of their potatoes, fresh chicken, dairy, and seasonal produce locally, and through funding from the Local Food Challenge, will happily show that it’s possible to do even more. Sudbury is becoming known for their local food festivals, and the hospital plans to create this same festival atmosphere within their cafeteria and on their patients’ plates by using as many seasonal foods as possible. By the end of the Challenge, they will increase their local food purchases by 15 per cent through new menu items and collaboration with their main suppliers.
