The event

County Hospital in Stafford has achieved the Soil Association’s Gold Food for Life Catering Mark for serving fresh and healthy meals made with local and organic ingredients. The award is the result of 12 months hard work to improve the food provided to patients and visitors at County Hospital. This work is soon to be supported by a significant investment in the kitchens at County Hospital, which are planned to be refurbished. The Gold Food for Life Catering Mark guarantees that all the issues have been taken care of – health, climate change and animal welfare. More and more, people want to know where their food comes from and how it was produced. The Catering Mark recognises food providers who prepare meals using fresh, seasonal, local and organic ingredients. It provides reassurance that the food County Hospital serves meets high standards of traceability, freshness and provenance. Find out how UHNM worked towards achieving the mark, and learn from other examples how you can improve the sustainability of your own catering service and Understand the impacts of improved catering services on public health. Along with UHNM, other confirmed speakers include the Soil Association, Stoke on Trent City Council and their work with the North Staffs Food Network and NHS Nottingham City CCG.
