Memorial Hospital logo

CARTHAGE, Ill. — Memorial Hospital is honoring National Nutrition Month by providing a free culturally themed meal prepared by the hospital’s chef and food and nutrition team to our entire staff. 

This year’s national theme is “Celebrate a World of Flavors,” which acknowledges the diversity of different cultures, ethnic cuisines and providing the public with insightful information. An online live-streamed event at 12:15 p.m. March 29 is accessible on Memorial Hospital’s Facebook page.   Those who join will be entered into a drawing to receive a $50 Amazon gift card. The public is encouraged to join to learn more about creating healthy habits that celebrate your heritage and introduce you to new foods and flavors.

Memorial Hospital and Hancock Village will highlight nutrition month by sharing culturally diverse foods such as cashew coconut curry, tofu banh mi bowl and mango chia seed. Other additional cultural dishes to be served in the hospital’s Courtyard Café throughout March will be a honey pistachio greek cup from Greece, arepas with spicy black beans from South America, a chicken ramen bowl from Japan and a buckwheat porridge bowl from Russia. The organization also will hold a contest that encourages staff to eat the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
