Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre

The Regional Hospital continues to use locally grown potatoes in their menu. This past year they began using large whole carrots from a local farm and added a homemade soup to the menu using locally grown cabbage. The Regional Hospital is also host to a farmers’ market during the summer months and in 2015 the Hospital’s Prevention and Screening Services and Mental Health Programs departments combined their efforts to grow a garden. The project was a big success – so much so, that the units started having salad days, making kale chips, as well as many other tasty treats.
