Chef Dugan Wetzel on cutting food waste by 32% in 3 months at Eskenazi Health

Posted by Sam Smith, Director of Marketing on June 7, 2023

The foodservice program at Eskenazi Health in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, is broad and ambitious.

They have a medically tailored meal program that serves the hospital as well as area nursing homes and adult care facilities.
