San Francisco hospital cuts food waste with on-demand service

October 10, 2019

UC San Francisco Medical Center has cut the amount of food it wastes by 30 percent with on-demand food service, according to an article on the Forbes website.

Most hospitals serve it at predetermined meal times, which may or may work with a patient’s appetite or the timing of a treatment or test.

With on-demand, a patient orders food just like hotel room service — when they’re ready.
