The Golden Horseshoe Food and Farming Alliance's 'Serving Up Local' initiative increased local food procurement in municipally-run long-term care homes in three Golden Horseshoe municipalities by a combined 23% in 2017! To build on this project, our 'Serving Up Local Training' project developed and tested local food mealtime engagement activities, resulting in a toolkit and this animated video.
Thanks to the Greenbelt Fund for their support.
“The Serving Up Local Training project drills down to the heart of local food purchasing in long-term care – the residents and their lived experiences,” shares Stephanie Crocker, GHFFA Stakeholder Engagement Strategist. “The project provides learning opportunities for staff that work directly with residents at meal time about new local food options in the homes and ways to communicate these options to residents. Residents can be empowered with the knowledge to be able to choose local foods when available on the menu contribute to a positive mealtime experience.”
