Fremantle Hospital’s trolley service has been revamped to meet the new healthy eating guidelines and now offers fresh, healthy options.

Every Monday and Thursday, the Fremantle Ladies’ Auxiliary take food and drink trolleys onto the hospital wards as a service to staff and patients.

Fremantle Ladies’ Auxiliary manager Tony Nella has led the implementation of the new Heathy Options WA policy with the support of the South Metropolitan Health Service health promotion team.

“The Ladies’ Auxiliary is constantly evolving with the times and is again demonstrating its compassion and care for our community by supporting the new policy, which increases the range of healthy food and drink options available,” he said. 

“Our staff are really positive about the healthier options available on the trolleys. We now offer a great range of healthy, fresh rolls, sandwiches, salads, fruit, yoghurt, small juices, water and more.”

The Ladies’ Auxiliary is a much-loved part of Fremantle Hospital’s history and cultural fabric and has been supplying food to patients, staff, carers and visitors since 1925, raising significant funds for the hospital over that time.
