AHF launches video contest

Sept. 12—The Association for Healthcare Foodservice is once again celebrating National Healthcare Foodservice Workers Week—Oct. 3-9—with a video contest. The association is looking for short, original videos that showcase how members celebrate during the week. The winning facility will be featured on AHF’s YouTube channel.

AHF says National Healthcare Foodservice Workers Week honors healthcare food and nutrition professionals in self-operated facilities and the teams who demonstrate every day why self-operation is in the industry’s best practice.

“National Healthcare Foodservice Workers Week is an excellent opportunity to recognize and thank those dedicated individuals who provide exceptional services in healthcare facilities across the United States,” said AHF President Patti Oliver in a press release. “AHF’s YouTube channel is a great platform for sharing our appreciation with our members and the public, allowing them to access it whenever it is convenient for them.”

Last year’s winning video was submitted by the University of Missouri Health System. You can view that video and upload your video for the contest at AHF’s YouTube channel here.

One of my favorite cartoons shows a commander whose soldiers are in the midst of fighting a war with bows and arrows. Without turning around, he tells a man who has come up behind him, “I’m sorry, I’m too busy to talk to you.” The man was a rifle salesman.

In today’s time-pressed world, we are all too busy. So, it can be difficult to find time to reach out to others for ideas, solutions and best practices. But as that cartoon illustrates, it’s critical to being successful. The sharing of knowledge is a pillar of FoodService Director . Through our magazine and events, we have been...

chefs

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch. Through featuring different chefs and chef-inspired meals, I’ve found the students have been looking forward to coming into the cafeteria. They are willing to try new things with crazy names, and to ask for their favorite outside items turned healthy.
