Have your say

A MENTAL health trust has slashed its food bill by one third by sourcing local food.

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which runs some services in Hampshire, has reduced its food bill by using local farmers and suppliers.

The trust said that now 85 per cent of the fresh food eaten by patients is sourced from the area, which has seen the organisation cut its fruit and vegetable bill by 20 per cent and meat bill by 10 per cent.

New policy includes the animal passport to trace where your food came from.
