Florida Hospital partners with Second Harvest to feed the hungry

first_img Reply July 14, 2017 at 9:30 am Florida Hospital partners with Second Harvest to feed the hungry – Top Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Thousands of pounds of food donated monthly to community through new partnershipFlorida Hospital and Second Harvest Food Bank are bringing fresh food to area soup kitchens and other organizations. Many economically disadvantaged Central Florida families often face an impossible choice: either food or shelter.In fact, according to a recent study, 70 percent of area households said they had to choose between buying food or paying their mortgage or rent at least once during the previous year.Many of those families rely on Second Harvest Food Bank’s local network of feeding partners to get the food they need to survive.And now, Florida Hospital is launching an initiative that will give thousands of pounds of food to the community each month through a partnership with Second Harvest.From pot roast to bread to chicken, Florida Hospital prepares thousands of meals daily for patients, visitors, and employees who eat at campus cafeterias. Now, extra food is carefully packaged and stored for donation to Second Harvest, which in turn donates the fresh food to area soup kitchens and other organizations through its Second Helpings program.Florida Hospital recently launched the program at its Orlando campus, and will eventually extend it to all its hospitals in Central Florida. An average of 1,500 pounds has been donated monthly to Second Harvest from the Orlando campus alone.“Lack of access to healthy foods is a significant challenge in Central Florida. This has major impacts on the overall health of our community, as good nutrition is a key to good health,” said Daryl Tol, president, and CEO of Florida Hospital and the Central Florida Division – Adventist Health System. “Florida Hospital is honored to partner with the Second Harvest Food Bank and help bring much-needed food to those who need it most.”One in six Central Floridians turns to charitable food assistance programs that are part of the local Second Harvest Food Bank network each year. On average, that’s nearly 500,000 low-income people who seek help with food more than 71,000 times per week.They are working-poor families, seniors, children, veterans, homeless and others. To make their struggles even more serious, these populations face a disproportionately high rate of preventable, food-related health challenges.According to Second Harvest’s Faces of Hunger report:27 percent of Central Florida households have at least one member with diabetes53 percent have a member with high blood pressure51 percent have members who are uninsured“When you consider the sheer numbers of people who are facing food insecurity, it’s not hard to see the potential impact that access to healthy food can have on overall community health,” said Dave Krepcho, president, and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank. “In fact, food and nutrition are one of the relatively few things that actually could be a game-changer when it comes to prevention and effective management of the disease.”About Florida Hospital:Founded in 1908 by pioneering Seventh-day Adventists who believed in whole-person health — healing the body, mind, and spirit — Florida Hospital has grown into one of the largest nonprofit hospitals in the country, caring for more than two million patient visits per year. It is a member of Adventist Health System, which operates 45 hospitals in nine states, making it one of the largest faith-based health care systems in the United States. There are 26 Florida Hospital locations throughout the state. In greater Orlando, Florida Hospital serves both as a community hospital and as a major tertiary referral hospital for the region, much of the Southeast, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Florida Hospital provides a range of health services, including many nationally and internationally recognized programs in cardiology, cancer, women’s medicine, neurosciences, diabetes, orthopedics, pediatrics, transplant and advanced surgical programs.About Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida:SHFBCF is a member of Feeding America – the largest charitable domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States. SHFBCF secures and distributes food and grocery products to approximately 550 local nonprofit feeding programs throughout Central Florida. Last year, with the help of food and financial donors, volunteers and a caring, committed community, the food bank distributed 52 million meals to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes. In addition, Second Harvest’s 14-week culinary program teaches foodservice-based technical, life and employability skills to economically hard-pressed adults. Our community turns to Second Harvest’s partner agencies more than 71,000 times per week. To learn more about SHFBCF, visit www.FeedHopeNow.org. Please enter your comment!

This house on the south coast of New South Wales was designed as one of a pair of modern beach houses occupying a greenfield site overlooking beautiful Gerringong beach.  The site is part of a new land release on the edge of a sleepy coastal town. From its elevated position, the house enjoys 270˚ views of the ocean, adjacent headland and evergreen hinterland beyond, which form part of the Great Dividing Range. The setting is breathtaking. Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesThe design deliberately challenged local planning provisions, which strictly dictated how to configure the building’s rooms within the site. We chose to make the most of the views as well as the sunny and protected northern aspect by locating the living and sleeping spaces on that side. This relegated the service rooms including the bathrooms, laundry and garage to the south. Surprisingly, this logical approach resulted in the local council refusing the first development application, which was later realized achieved through an appeal and minor modifications.  Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesIn addition to reversing the council’s planning dictates, we split the conventional planning configuration by locating living room, second kitchen and master bedroom upstairs, where the views are best. Downstairs, the main kitchen, dining, family room and other bedrooms open up to the north and the mountains to the west. All of the rooms open onto generous outdoor spaces, located on different sides of the house, ensuring protection from the ever changing and strong winds. Thus taking cues from the beachside location, to create a weekender set up for casual entertaining.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesAs with most of our projects, we adopted a key Smart Design Studio planning principle, to minimise reliance on doors, but rather let space flow around cores of joinery and uninterrupted blade walls.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesThe form is extremely simple and the facade has a very confident approach to solid and void. Large walls of glass on the upper floor and deep shaded terraces are afforded by the generous cantilever roof. These hover over the cedar-clad ‘box’ below, which has either deep reveals or timber adjustable louvres to temper the environment. Naturally, the use of glass and solid relates to the rooms contained within, where more private spaces are more protected than the more public areas. Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesThe timber cladding, a classic beach house material, folds to create a solid balustrade to further improve privacy. With time, the strong coastal light will cause the timber to fade like a piece of driftwood, and the house will settle into the harsh landscape. The garden has been planted in a scrubby coastal style, using species from the immediate surroundings, and will mature and evolve over time. That timber then extends inwards and becomes part of the interiors, through wall cladding in key areas, limed oak joinery and blackened features such as the stair, to further blur the relationship of the inside and out. This is complemented with grey large-format vitrified tiles throughout and crisp white walls, sculpting a neutral base for art and the ever-changing environment. The strong natural light allows sun and shade to animate the architecture, making the house part of the ever-changing scenery of the ocean.Save this picture!© Sharrin ReesProject gallerySee allShow lessWhat the Guggenheim Should Consider Before Building in HelsinkiArticlesREX Unveils Details of Five Manhattan West DevelopmentArchitecture News Share Lamble Residence / Smart Design Studio 2013 Year:  Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/475027/lamble-residence-smart-design-studio Clipboardlast_img read more

House in Utsunomiya2 / Soeda and associates Architects

Upon designing this house, we were asked to design within a very limited budget as well as fulfilling the following specific requests from the client; double-height living room with sufficient natural light, to be placed at the center of the house; three private rooms; and a large terrace. The site is located in the suburb of a provincial city, along a bus route linked to/from the city center. Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe client’s property is a middle portion of a large land that is divided into three narrow and long lots oriented at a slightly rotated angle from east-west direction. Properties on both sides are still vacant, but naturally expected to be built in the near future. Considering the narrow and long shape of the site, which width is only 7.5 meters, it is concerned that if a building is constructed on the adjacent site on the south, our building will have problems with natural light and also appropriate distance in between considering privacy. We need to work out a solution to these issues.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaAs a result of design studies we come up with the final plan; car parking space for three cars is located adjacent to the road; a maximum buildable volume is placed on the remaining land and top portions are cut off diagonally in two levels to create south-facing windows. The new spatial axes create a dynamic effect in the living room at the center of the house. The irregular shape seems irrational at first, but it is actually a result of careful design studies from an environmental point of view.Save this picture!© Takumi OtaThe void space above the living room becomes a central space where all elements including the private rooms and the terrace integrate with each other. The study on the second floor is accessible via the terrace only and is secluded from the rest of the house, to secure privacy in this compact house.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVIDEO: Inspired by Archigram, A Humanoid Walking CityVideosPresido Trust Rejects Shortlisted Proposals, Calls Off CompetitionArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeSoeda and associates ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTochigiHousesJapanPublished on February 07, 2014Cite: “House in Utsunomiya2 / Soeda and associates Architects” 07 Feb 2014.

Prevention is better than a cure

first_imgStressin the workplace could be seen as an epidemic. However, some public sectoremployers are showing it can be avoided if the right policies are put in place.Jo Rick, principal research fellow, Institute for Employment Studies, applaudstheir creativity and flexibility in tackling the problemThepublic sector, with constant modernisation initiatives and a powerful impetusfor sweeping change in every area, appears to be the perfect breeding groundfor stress. A cycle of new demands and pressure leads to more stress, absence,and then further demands to do better still. Organisations could be forgivenfor pressing the panic button.Buthold on. What is this ‘disease’ that could spread so quickly? The fact is that‘stress’ is used too often as a catch-all phrase. A GP will write ‘stress’ on asick note because their duty is to decide whether or not a person is fit forwork. However, the key to being able to intervene effectively is understandingthe specific nature of the problem.Stressas a cause of absence is different from physical illnesses. If an employeesends in a sick note, for example, for a broken leg, the employer immediatelyhas some idea of the likely length of absence, the limitations on that employeeduring the illness and whether there will be any need for adjustment to work inthe longer term.Adiagnosis of stress says nothing about the specific problem, the possiblecauses, the likely length of absence and whether the problem is reallywork-related. Technically speaking, stress is not a diagnosis, and is notlisted in medical diagnostic criteria.Lookmore closely and employers will see that stress is not the invisible assassin,stalking the workplace, but is being used to describe what is actually a rangeof specific, identifiable and usually preventable or resolvable situations.Organisations can deal with it, and there are many examples of good practice inthe UK of how employees are being rehabilitated back into work.1Alongsideother good practice in rehabilitation, organisations are starting to recognisethat if they are to tackle stress, they need to start with a much more detailedand specific assessment of the nature of the problem.Forinstance, Lancashire Constabulary Central Division has changed its culture toensure stress is seen as an issue that needs to be addressed quickly. Anattendance policy is in place to pick up on longer spells of absence, and anyabsence relating to stress or anxiety is followed up immediately. Fullassessments are made to pinpoint the real causes of absence and employees areable to agree their own rehabilitation plan, which might involve temporary‘recuperative’ duties, change of work location or home working. The range ofstress policies and practices are seen to have been a real success in reducinglevels of sickness absence.AtSandwell Healthcare Trust, there is a robust absence reporting procedure inplace, with regular contact with the absent employee. Rehabilitation plans aretailored to the needs of the individual employee, often involving the use oftemporary placements. The trust operates a case management system, with rolesclearly defined for the line manager, divisional HR managers and occupationalhealth in each plan. Training is available for managers in managing change andadvice on how to maintain contact with an absent employee – a difficult taskfor many managers when stress is the problem. Goodrehabilitation practice is based around the following principles:–Maintaining contact with the employee on a personal rather than a purelywork-related basis–Attempting to diagnose the specific problems behind the stress involved–Providing immediate support from the start of the absence–Encouraging stress awareness among line managers–Being creative and flexible about options for a return-to-work–Developing an agreed rehabilitation plan with the employee–Creating a written policy or set of guidelines for employee rehabilitation.Thereis much talk of flexibility in the workplace in order to improve motivation andproductivity. It may actually be that creativity and flexibility in approachesto preventing stress and rehabilitating employees can bring even bigger rewards.Someorganisations are trying something new. For example, offering coaching formanagers in dealing with an employee once they are off work with stress, andthe creation of closer working relationships between employers, occupationalhealth and GPs to determine more specific causes.Themore specific diagnoses become, the more quickly this ominous, entirely vagueepidemic can be exposed and organisations will be able to get a handle on thespecific underlying issues.Reference:1.Best Practice in Rehabilitating Employees Following Absence Due to Work-RelatedStress, Thompson, Neathey, Rick, HSE 2003, ISBN 0 7176 2715 2, £20.00, is alsoavailable as a free download from the Health & Safety Executive stress webpages, www.hse.gov.uk/stress/research.htmFormore information, contact Jo Rick, [email protected],at the Institute for Employment Studies (IES), www.employment-studies.co.uk Prevention is better than a cureOn 1 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
