Make Hospital Food Healthy

The Physicians Committee urges hospitals to 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
