OUR SUSTAINABLE WELLNESS PROGRAM
Why wellness? Why now?
As a company that serves approximately one million meals daily, we have an enormous opportunity to influence the eating habits of patients, hospital guests and our own employees. And that opportunity has never been greater.
That’s why we are launching WellPower, our refreshed name and look to describe our comprehensive wellness and sustainability programs. WellPower’s goal is simple: to inspire people to eat nourishing food that will help them sustain a healthier lifestyle. Through knowledge and motivation, we want to help people understand that healthy food can taste delicious and sustain a healthier lifestyle.
Our wellness philosophy
Wellness, as a means of promoting culture change within our communities, serves as a prominent entity in all that we do. We create great tasting and better-for-you foods that energize the mind, body and spirit, encouraging our customers and communities in which we serve, to embrace a delicious and healthful style of well-being through balanced nutrition.
Morrison’s wellness approach also includes a commitment to increase the amount of locally-sourced fruits and vegetables; the elimination of all artificial trans-fat; a significant reduction in sodium and calories from traditional fare; and sustainability commitments, such as minimizing food waste, sourcing sustainable packaging and supporting composting and recycling programs.. However, wellness isn’t just about the food; it is also about changing the culture to effectively promote positive health changes in caregivers, patients and community.
