LRGHealthcare commits to serving meat without unnecessary antibiotics

LACONIA — On Friday, October 24, Lakes Region General Hospital and Franklin Regional Hospital will serve over 200 meals that feature meat raised without non-therapeutic antibiotics.

Joining alongside Health Care Without Harm and more than 200 other hospitals across the country (49 in New England and 1 of 2 in the state of New Hampshire), LRGHealthcare is celebrating Food Day through its efforts to eliminate the overuse of antibiotics in animal agriculture and build a healthy, sustainable food supply.

"Over a year ago we made a change for the better and started purchasing all ground beef from Miles Smith Farm in Loudon," said Shirley Valley, Director of Food & Nutrition Services, "All of their beef is locally raised without hormones and antibiotics; we are proud to take this opportunity to showcase our commitment through Food Day on Friday."

"In order to solve the growing antibiotic resistance crisis in medicine we need to transform animal agriculture," said Gary Cohen, president and co-founder of Health Care Without Harm. "Hospitals – like LRGHealthcare and others participating in Food Day – can lead this transformation by using their purchasing power to serve healthier food to their patients and employees as well as drive healthy, sustainable practices in the communities they serve."

Across the country on Food Day alone, participating hospitals will collectively spend thousands of dollars on 9,000 pounds of chicken, 6,300 pounds of beef, and 2,700 pounds of pork and other meats that are raised without non-therapeutic antibiotics.

LRGHealthcare will be serving Shepherd's Pie as their special item of the day on Friday for patients and in their cafeterias.
