Beth Dorsey, TMC’s director of Food & Nutrition Services, is featured in Farmers and Market, the final segment of the nine-part Arizona Public Media series, Feeding Our Future.
The hospital buys about 300 pounds of fresh produce a month through the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona’s Farm-to-Institution food brokerage business. The partnership helps ensure a market for local farmers and fresh organic produce for TMC’s staff, patients and visitors.
Produced by Laura Markowitz, the radio series features stories of the innovative work being done to feed families, promote health and food security, prepare for climate change, and create pathways out of poverty. The series was made possible with support from the Zuckerman Family Foundation.
Episode 1 aired Sept. 16, 2016, and the final episode airs today and tomorrow, on NPR 89.1/FM. Tune in to Arizona Spotlight, or visit https://radio.azpm.org/kuaz.azspotlight/ to hear all the episodes.
