A new 3-year Food and Drink Strategy has been developed to benefit all of the Trust’s service users, visitors and staff. The facilities team has worked alongside the dietetics service and catering contractor Outsourced Client Solutions (OCS), as well as service users and carers to promote healthier food choices.
The aim of the strategy is to provide a range of food options that reflect the Trust’s diverse community. Service users will have the opportunity to obtain roles within purchasing, stocking, selling and producing food to not only make healthier choices but as part of their recovery.
Commenting on the launch of the Strategy, Jennifer Holmyard, Facilities Services Manager at the Trust, said: “We are committed to supporting service users, visitors and staff to maintain a healthy lifestyle by providing and promoting healthier food choices.
“This strategy is designed to support everyone in making long term changes to their diet and lifestyle, and we are delighted that we received input from our service users in the development of it.”
