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.
