AMA to Hospitals: Start Serving Vegan Food; More food delivery services coming your way

American Medical Association Tells Hospitals: Start Serving Vegan Food
It doesn’t make much sense for hospitals to serve patients foods full of saturated fat and cholesterol when—more and more—those patients are checking themselves in to seek treatment for diseases that are caused, in part, by poor dietary choices in the first place.

Mother Launches Vegan Meal Delivery Service for Little Ones
Vegan meal delivery services are all the rage right now—and with good reason. There’s a growing demand for healthy, whole foods as well as an increased awareness of the benefits of plant-based eating, but sometimes, life moves too fast to prepare the meals yourself. But why should adults have all the fun? A new vegan meal plan service called Little Harvest is set to launch later this month, and like its name suggests, the meals are for the little ones. Of course, there are those who take issue with vegan meals for young children. A judge in Belgium has convicted the parents of a seven-month-old boy who died of malnutrition after he was fed a vegan diet.

Maine farm soon to roll out its vegan, organic, local food meal kits
Our friends at Frinklepod Farms feel that it makes sense to stay local with their delivery business. “We are planning to start small and distribute within our local community, mainly to put the focus on the ‘local’ in local foods.”We would love to create a model of locally-sourced meal kits that farms and food producers in other regions can emulate. We expect that there will be enough demand in our local area to meet what we can supply.

They hope that they will inspire others: “We would love to create a model of locally-sourced meal kits that farms and food producers in other regions can emulate. We expect that there will be enough demand in our local area to meet what we can supply.” We wish them the best of luck and hope that others’ follow in their footsteps.
