In the heart of every care home, the kitchen not only prepares nourishing meals but also plays a vital role in fostering a sense of comfort and well-being for residents. However, this essential space can also generate a substantial amount of waste, which poses both environmental and economic challenges.
We visited Sanctuary Care, Watlington to learn about the vital steps they’ve put in place to manage the issue of food waste across their care homes. Watch the video below to learn more.
“Managing waste for the generation currently in care is absolutely huge. They come from a generation where waste was something that just did not exist... For us it’s a re-education of the chefs that we don’t throw away, we repurpose where we can… The management is really important to ensure we are not over-producing and that the residents have the
choice that they need.”
