Make Hospital Food Healthy

The Physicians Committee’s Make Hospital Food Healthy campaign urges hospitals create a healthy hospital food environment for patients, visitors, and staff by:

  • Improving patient and cafeteria menus by banning processed meats, including hot dogs, and offering more disease-fighting plant-based meals
  • Hosting restaurants that offer only healthful, low-fat, cholesterol-free meals

If you would like to improve the food environment in your local hospital, click here to download the Heart Healthy Foods for Hospitals Toolkit. Does your local hospital host a fast-food restaurant? Check the list below.
