US (TN): Urban agriculture at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

The importance of food and diet in healing and medical treatments is becoming much more widely recognized, so it is only natural for hospitals to realize the value of providing local, organic food to their patients. Having a farm onsite adds to the wellness culture, not only by providing nutritious food but also by creating a sensory experience for patients to connect with nature. One such institution getting involved in food and sustainability is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Agritecture interviewed Kevin Krueger, the Procurement and Sustainability Manager at St. Jude, and learned about the hospital’s urban agriculture initiatives.
