HEALTHY FOOD IN THE MATERNITY WARD

The Sprott donation is being used to fund a food program in the maternity ward which enables family members and moms to get a fresh, healthy snack anytime, day or night.

At many hospitals, the birth partner is forced to leave the hospital to get food because the hospital only feeds the mother or because the cafeteria may be closed. At St. Joe’s, the special vending machine offers just-made sandwiches, fruit and a drink to hungry family members.
