Background of the organization
Nourish Leadership works with healthcare institutions to help them reduce their environmental footprint and deliver better quality care through food-based programs. They do this through training cohorts of healthcare leaders on the relationship between climate change and health equity, and the role of institutions in supporting increased climate action.
Funding will be used to support three healthcare institutions:
- CIUSS Laval to deliver culturally appropriate meals, with emphasis on fresh produce and developing healthy, local, sustainable foods for its menus;
- CIUSS Centre-Sud to improve healthy food and produce access through healthcare referrals for food insecure patients and families;
- Jewish General Hospital to redesign menus that reduce waste and that focus on fresh, healthy and sustainably-procured food.
- Grant Type: Montreal funding
- Funding Stream: Montreal
