Healthy Hospital Program

Everyone loves new options and appreciates being given more choices. Excite your patients and staff by providing delicious plant-based options, and share with them why you’ve added these healthy dishes.

Great ways to promote new options:

When bringing in new recipes, be sure to have your staff try them and gather feedback. Add the most popular items to the food line in the cafeteria! 

  • Table tents on cafeteria tables and patient trays
  • Highlight on menu boards and chef’s special designations
  • Create special scripts for service staff and/or incentives to see who can serve the most
