More than 37 million Americans struggle with hunger – and that number could easily grow because of the COVID-19 virus. Americans typically waste approximately 40 percent of the food we produce, which is why donating food is the right thing to do.
In healthcare, foodservice plays a vital role in the health and recovery of patients, but in a time of crisis, we need to put additional emphasis on the wellness of our Morrison Healthcare team members. By making a concerted effort to care for individuals, managers have an opportunity to make a measurable impact on the mental health of our teams.
To show our appreciation to hospital workers treating patients with the COVID-19 virus, Morrison Healthcare teamed up with the Miami Marlins Home Plate Meals for Heroes, Coca-Cola and several other food vendors for this special event. And, after days of ordering food and working with suppliers, it paid off. When delivering meals to nurses and others late into the night, Addonisio says the feeling of satisfaction is unlike any he’s ever experienced.
As our healthcare partners across the country continue to battle the novel coronavirus—COVID-19, we’re using the Power of Food to offer them comfort during these challenging times. From care packages to take-home meals and pop-up markets, we are finding ways to take care of our caregivers, our staff, and their families, while maintaining the strictest safety measures.
As the country continues to implement strategies to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, we must all do our best to keep our communities and patients safe. As a result, we've shared our best practices in the hopes that we can help other healthcare providers and operations. Read them in this Morrison blog!
