Chef says Scarborough-Rouge merger could be bad news for good food

Last week we wrote about a possible Scarborough-Rouge Valley hospital merger that threatens an innovative local food program.

We tweeted our story to Toronto chef Joshna Maharaj , a rising star in the culinary scene who served as a consultant on The Scarborough Hospital food service initiative.

Maharaj has posted her own comments, calling this potential situation “bad news for good food in hospitals.”

She writes on her blog “We cannot let business decisions stand in the way of what is truly best for patients in this case. We cannot continue to allow our health care system to serve its budgets before it serves the people.”

We couldn’t have said it better.

You can also participate in one of two open telephone town halls the two hospitals are conducting. You do need to sign up in advance (click here). The first town hall is on September 24 at 7:10 pm, the other October 8 at 7:05 pm.
