Bryan Health pushes to use locally-sourced foods

The idea of a large institution using local foods to supplement their day-to-day meal services sounds next to impossible.

Lincoln, Nebraska, is home to Bryan Health, a 550-bed, nonprofit, locally owned, health care organization that serves patients throughout Nebraska, as well as parts of Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota, and other states in the region.
