Since we managed the food service of the Arnau de Vilanova University Hospital, at SERHS Food, we have been very aware of the need to be more actors than spectators in relation to the initiatives that are carried out in the demarcation of Lleida.
From now on, we add a new collaboration that emphasizes the support for research and innovation in health, from the Institute of Biomedical Research Dr. Pifarré Foundation (IRB Lleida). From this entity, synergies are created between basic research, clinical research and epidemiological research, because biomedical research is the engine for improving daily clinical practice, for the benefit of the entire population. From the IRB Lleida, a chain of translational research is reached, from basic research to the one that studies the behavior of the ailments in large population groups.
If at the end of 2018, we closed a collaboration agreement with the Special Work Center (CET) “El Pla” of Almacelles to promote job security for people at risk of social exclusion, now, from SERHS Food, we take the initiative again to participate in supporting entities that seek a benefit for society that is becoming more demanding every day.
The agreement between IRB Lleida and SERHS Food has been done in a relaxed act and where the representatives of the two entities have set up new meetings to monitor the different projects, which SERHS Food and others companies support.
From today SERHS Food manages the Catering in Company Service (SAC) of the city of Barcelona, through which we assist mostly people over 65 with social needs.
With this service, SERHS Food guarantees physical and social nutritional well-being to people in a vulnerable situation, whether they are elderly people living in dwellings without conditions to conserve or cook food or elderly people who live in well-maintained homes but they require a follow-up of health habits outside their home.
In the same way, SERHS Food will provide service to all those elderly people at risk of social isolation. For this aim, beyond the basic food service, we will encourage and enhance the maintenance and improvement of the autonomy of the people, making decisions and having control over one’s life.
We planned a series of activities that will be carried out in the dining rooms and will help to promote good relations, interpersonal communication between users and the strengthening of skills, resources and support networks to enable people to improve their welfare and be as autonomous as possible. The activities planned ranged from the organization of cooking workshops, to urban gardens, recycling activities, pottery, initiation into English, yoga and even laughter therapy.
The contract that SERHS Food has signed with the Barcelona City Council is valid until December 31st of 2020 and may be extended for one more year. The service includes Catering in Company of the districts of Horta-Guinardó, Nou Barris, Sant Andreu and Sant Martí, and will offer more than 400 meals every day.
As on other occasions, providing this social service of care and healing to people, is very important for SERHS Food, since our philosophy, beyond the business objectives, is to work continuously to ensure the food needs of citizens and their well-being.
Starting on March 2019, SERHS Food Educa, has been managing the school menu service of 4 schools in the city of Zaragoza. This service, also provided in the city of Oviedo since 2018, consolidates the expansion strategy towards the Iberian Peninsula and expands the coverage in this area. In Zaragoza, the service will be carried out during the next 18 months with the possibility of extending it for another 12 months.
The school menu service, which includes lunch meals, will be provided daily to almost 1,000 children of Pre-school and Primary Education, from September to July. As in all SERHS Food services, the fruits and vegetables served are fresh and seasonal. In addition, all menus include products specially designed to favor the growth and development of children.
Beyond providing menus to the schools, SERHS Food aims to instill healthy habits in this first stage of education and promote the importance of the consumption of foods rich in calcium and fiber, that is why the selection of products and the elaboration of the daily menus is carried out with great care by our team of nutritionists.
SERHS Food new website includes data of the origin of the aliments, as well as of services that provide to educational centres.
SERHS Food Educa releases its new website; with new content and design, the goal is to consolidate a relationship of closeness and transparency with families and schools. The main aim is to educate children and teenagers through a diet by a team of dedicated and specialized professionals. For example, the new website gives information about all types of services offered to schools, from the kitchen to transport and catering for especial events.
Moreover, the new website also considers the families need to know the origin of the food served to their children. Therefore, SERHS Food Educa facilitates data about the products used to cook the different menu dishes, empowering the “from the land to the dish” concept and turning it into a common interest for the company and customers.
The new portal shows us SERHS Food Educa philosophy around its educational project, which goes much further than simply feeding children and teenagers. We are committed with their education in one of the most relevant aspects: the diet. We stand up for a healthy diet, the respect of our planet, solid values and a good coexistence between colleagues, for example, in the school canteen.
SERHS Services, a new collaborator in this new age
The page has been created by the Department of Digital Communication of SERHS Services, inside Social SERHS, following the indications of the Commercial and Marketing Department of SERHS Food.
We followed the graphic line that SERHS Food Educa uses in his communicative elements for final consumers and schools: the students of the centres, the school’s staff and the own managers of schools’ canteens.
What’s more, we created a user friendly website design for www.serhsfoodeduca.com, making the user experience intuitive and simple; with a responsive design, adaptable to any type of screen without losing information and with a pleasant navigation on phones and computers.
