Healthcare facilities — hospitals, assisted living facilities, hospices, and similar establishments — must have a contingency plan in place in the event of a natural disaster or other crisis. One of the most important aspects of a contingency plan is food.
When disaster strikes, it’s crucial that healthcare facilities have a response plan that includes enough food on hand to feed their patrons. You need food that is easy to prepare — even with limited resources. You also want to make sure you feed patrons familiar, balanced meals to boost morale and ensure their nutritional needs are met. That’s where Easy Meal comes in.
