Partnership brings local food to Va. hospital

Local Food Hub provides cafeteria farm stands to UVA locations.

July 24—The University of Virginia Health System is trying to offer healthier hospital food options.

They're partnering with the Local Food Hub to provide cafeteria farm stands, at various UVA Health System locations to provide more nutritious meal options for patients and employees of the hospital.

Locally grown food is going into meals like the "urban chopped salad," and showing up in stands, so people can shop for fresh ingredients for their own meals.
