Sept. 26, 2014, Leamington, Ont. — The Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital site of Halton Healthcare Services (HHS) has received the first OGVG Local Food Week award.
HHS is a multi-site healthcare organization comprised of three hospitals serving the communities of Milton, Oakville, Clarkson and Halton Hills.
OGVG general manager George Gilvesy and foodservice representative Nancy Hewitt presented the award to Marianne Katusin (HHS manager, operational readiness, food services) and Elma Hrapovich (HHS director of nutrition and foodservices).
This team developed multiple locally themed OGVG promotional displays creating a lot of excitement and awareness about this celebratory week.
“OGVG recognizes Marianne Katusin, Elma Hrapovich and their foodservice team for their exemplary efforts demonstrated at HHS to promote Ontario greenhouse vegetables during Local Food Week,” said Gilvesy.
“We look forward to supporting this new partnership and together growing our presence within the broader public sector,” he added.
OGVG provided 27 healthcare locations across Ontario with a promotional tool kit consisting of ideas, recipes and merchandising material.
These resources were created to support Ontario’s Local Food Week held this year during the week of June 2-8.
This project is funded in part through Growing Forward 2 (GF2), a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. The Agricultural Adaptation Council assists in the delivery of GF2 in Ontario.
