Throw away food

A friend attended a lecture at The Welcome Institute last week and was told that Serco hospital food (see my earlier blog) is cooked in Wales, is then frozen and transported across the country to the company’s franchises. The food is then reheated and ’served’. The culinary destinations include not just hospitals, but the military, prisons, asylum-seeker holding centres and not forgetting the Flyingdales early warning facility. A third to a half of all this food is thrown away. The bread today was clearly toasted in Cardiff. No aspersions on Serco staff who are kind, caring and doing their best on their poverty wages. The Serco CEO on his £850,000 annual salary is doing best of all.
