Hayley Lapalme’s TED talk “How I Fell in Love with Hospital Food”
Hayley grew up in the Canadian outdoors, paddling canoes and playing tag in the forest near her home in Waterloo, Ontario. Hayley’s respect and appreciation for the people who feed the world’s communities was cultivated in her grand parents’ backyard and has grown over time through the farmers she has met across Canada, India, and Barbados. She now works as a researcher and facilitator advancing the sustainability of our food systems with the environmental non-profit, My Sustainable Canada.
Hayley talks about the provincial hospital food system and highlights the two largest obstacles, the crisis of quality and of mix messaging. She points out how a large problem can be turned into a even bigger opportunity… so watch the video and see for yourself.
