First STEPS Initiative: Phase 1 Final Evaluation Report
Hospitals across the MaineHealth system have made excellent progress toward helping patients, employees, and communities make healthier food choices. In recognition of these important efforts, MaineHealth launched the Food Fight – a friendly competition inviting all of our member hospitals and organizations to show off their best healthy recipes.
Hundreds of employees and community members from across the MaineHealth system submitted their healthiest, tastiest recipes featuring a variety of different local fruits and vegetables. From these submissions, a panel at each organization selected the top two recipes based on creativity, originality, and of course, nutrition.
To determine the winning recipe at each organization, food service teams at each hospital prepared the top two recipes and hosted taste tests in their cafeterias. Similar to the format of cooking competition television shows, employees and visitors stopped by to taste each dish and cast their vote.
A recipe book was created with the top two recipe submissions from each MaineHealth organization, featuring at total of 14 different local fruits and vegetables! For more details and to view the recipe book, visit www.mainehealth.org/foodfight
