Some residents of a veteran’s hospital in Halifax are asking that someone take a closer look at the food they’re being served.
They say the fare at the Camp Hill Veterans Memorial hospital is bland, overcooked, hard to eat and low on nutritional value.
The hospital is part of the QEII Health Sciences Centre which has a central kitchen that prepares meals for more than 1,000 patients and residents at seven facilities.
An official with the hospital says it consults regularly with the veterans to develop a four-week, menu that includes food made from scratch on site and allows the residents at least two choices per meal.
A spokesman for Veterans Affairs Minister Steven Blaney says hes asked officials to speak with Capital Health to ensure residents are receiving proper care.
