FISH TO BE ON THE NEW HORIZONS MENU
July 15, 2017
But, even with all those fish, seafood isn’t so easy to come by for the residents of New Horizon’s Long Term Care Unit.
Necessary health regulations prevent PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center from directly accepting donated fish but Ketchikan Medical Center Dietitian, Ashley Hackert RD and community partners found a way.
According to information provided by Ketchikan Medial Center, the Cedars Lodge have happily agreed to be their partner to process local fish donations. Russell Cockrum, of the Viking Maid, is on our Community Health Board and he has also agreed to join this partnership to donate fish to New Horizons residents.
Here’s how it works: locals can drop off their donated fish (salmon, halibut, rockfish, cod etc.) to the Cedars Lodge anytime during the week. They will process the fish and have it delivered to Ketchikan Medical Center for preparation in their kitchen. It will then be served to the 25+ New Horizons residents.
New Horizons residents have been asked to share their favorite recipes so Ketchikan Medical Center's Food Services team can prepare the fish in familiar, local ways. Several residents were fisherman before they retired and having fish on the menu has been a number one request.
