The Junior Doctors at Sheffield Children’s have received freshly prepared frozen meals and fruit from Food Works Sheffield!

As part of a new trial, the junior doctors’ mess have funded meals from Food Works over the festive period to make sure they have access to nutritious meals – and helps reduce food waste in the city while doing so. Many of the junior doctors will be working busy anti-social shifts away from their families over the festive period, so this is a great opportunity to see how Food Works operates!

Sheffield Children’s is using this as a trial with the aim to develop a partnership with Food Works and offer something similar to more colleagues across the Trust in 2022.

Noreen West, Deputy Medical Director at Sheffield Children’s said “We are really excited to able to develop community partnerships with innovative organisations like Food Works, particularly when it helps us look after the wellbeing of our colleagues over the Christmas period. As an organisation we are striving to be one of the greenest healthcare trusts in the country, and supplying nutritious, sustainable food to staff and families is key to that ambition, and is part of what makes Sheffield Children’s such a brilliant place to work.”

Food Works is a social enterprise making food fair and sustainable for everyone in Sheffield, it recovers over 500 tonnes of food a year from going to landfill which is enough food to make over a million meals! Not only that, Food Works grows food locally and works with farms and allotment groups to provide fresh, sustainable food to all.
