Halton Healthcare Services receives OGVG's first local food week award

The Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG) are pleased to announce that Halton Healthcare Services (HHS)/Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital site has received the first OGVG Local Food Week award. HHS is a multi-site healthcare organization and is comprised of three hospitals serving the communities of Milton, Oakville, Clarkson and Halton Hills in Ontario, Canada.

OGVG General Manager, George Gilvesy, and Foodservice Representative, Nancy Hewitt, presented the first Local Food Week award to Marianne Katusin (HHS Manager, Operational readiness, Food Services) and Elma Hrapovich (HHS Director of Nutrition and Foodservices). This team developed multiple locally-themed OGVG promotional displays creating a lot of excitement and awareness about this celebratory week.

“OGVG recognizes Marianne Katusin, Elma Hrapovich and their foodservice team for their exemplary efforts demonstrated at HHS to promote Ontario greenhouse vegetables during Local Food Week,” said George Gilvesy, General Manager of OGVG. “We look forward to supporting this new partnership and together growing our presence within the broader public sector,” he added.

OGVG engaged with 27 healthcare locations across Ontario providing each site with a promotional tool kit consisting of ideas, recipes and merchandising material. These resources were created to support Ontario’s Local Food Week held this year during the week of June 2-8.
